Minnesota Orchestra Cuts Ties With Minneapolis Police, Will No Longer Use MPD as Security For Concerts

The Minnesota Orchestra has announced that it is cutting ties with the Minneapolis police, after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a MPD officer.

"The killing of George Floyd marks a turning point for our organization, and we join with other community members in calling for transformational changes in the Minneapolis Police Department," the orchestra said in a tweet.

They go on to say, "We are restructuring our security staff and will no longer engage Minneapolis Police Department officers to provide security at Orchestra concerts until the MPD implements fundamental changes."
