Recently, MPD has received several compliments for the officers who have staffed the rallies and protests that have come in light of events in Ferguson and New York. One citizen who attended the demonstration at the South Transfer Point on Friday thanked officers for their service and appreciated how the protestors were able to safely demonstrate their right to free speech. Another citizen said that they were proud of how law enforcement has worked with recent protests.
