The “Eastside Guardian” Community Project is a way to publicly acknowledge the outstanding job that our community’s police officers do every day, in the neighborhoods where we live and work. This bronze sculpture was created by Neil Brodin, a former Minneapolis police officer, in 2007.

The three-piece installation sits outside the Second Precinct Police Station in Northeast Minneapolis along Central Avenue. The officer wearing the turn of the century police uniform is modeled after an ancestor of Hennepin County Commissioner Mark Stenglein.
