At least seven Minneapolis police officers have resigned from the department since unrest began over the death of George Floyd last month.
According to Minneapolis Star Tribune (citing department officials), at least 7 police officers have resigned and more than half a dozen are in the process of leaving.
Chief Deputy Police, Henry Halvorson wrote an email: “During this busy and trying time I have heard secondhand information that there have been employees that have advised their supervisors that they separated with the city (or quit) without completing paperwork.
“We need to have the process completed to ensure that we know who is continuing to work,” he wrote while directing officers wishing to leave to contact the human resources department.
Police spokesman John Elder said people seek to leave employment for myriad reasons and the MPD was no exception, according to Minneapolis Star Tribune.
