August 6 Speaker - Mike Blood
Join us in-person or virtually at our August 6th meeting to hear Mike's story.
Mike Blood, Veteran Edina Police Dept
With 15 gallons of blood, volunteer donors kept police officer Mike Blood alive after being shot in the line of duty.
November 16, 2000 is a date the Edina community—and one police officer in particular—will never forget. A robber entered a bank in this normally quiet Minneapolis suburb, demanded that a teller fill a duffle bag with money, and then fled. Officer Mike Blood, a 29-year veteran of the Edina police force and mere weeks from retirement, was first on the scene. “As a police officer, you don’t want to go directly to the bank,” he commented. “You want to get the advantage. I tried to find his getaway car, and spotted a green Ford Explorer with no front license plate in a nearby parking lot. I peeked in the driver-side window, saw a pile of guns and ammo, and said to myself, ‘I think this is the person.’”
