At least seven Minneapolis police officers have resigned from the department since unrest began following the death of George Floyd last month, and more than half a dozen are in the process of leaving, City of Minneapolis spokesperson, Casper Hill tells CNN's Aaron Cooper.
“As of Wednesday, HR has processed separations of employment for seven MPD employees since Memorial Day. That number does not include the four officers involved in the George Floyd case. The reason any employee gives for separating from the City is not public information," Hill said.
“There’s nothing that leads us to believe that at this point the numbers are so great that it’s going to be problematic,” Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder tells the Minneapolis Start Tribune of the parting officers, which include both patrol officers and detectives. “People seek to leave employment for a myriad reasons — the MPD is no exception.”
