MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A sellout crowd is expected at Mall of America Field on Sunday when the Minnesota Vikings play the Detroit Lions during their final game at the Metrodome. That has police and dome staff preparing for the anything.
“We’re adding nearly double the amount of Minneapolis police officers,” said Jeff Anderson, executive director of communications for the Vikings. “Typically, we have 500 Whelan Security staff, about 60 Minneapolis police officers. For this weekend, we’ll have closer to 600 Whelan Security Staff and just over 100 Minneapolis police officers.”
