MPD wins hot dog eating contest for the 11th year in a row

July 17, 2019 (MINNEAPOLIS) – Happy National Hot Dog Day! We celebrated with Minneapolis Fire Department and St. Paul Police Department by competing in a hot dog eating contest hosted by Chicago’s Taste Authority.

Thanks to Officer Robert Thunder for eating 6 fully loaded Chicago-style hot dogs, MPD has won 11 years in a row. Previous winners were Officer Carl White and Officer Tony Olsen.

The $925 won will be donated to South-side Police Activities League (PAL).
