Formed in 1917, the band was initially composed of police officers only. In 1919, civilian members were allowed to join the ranks, and in 1969 the first women were admitted. The band's first parade was in the Armistice Day Parade November, 1918. In 2007, the Minneapolis Police Band was inducted into the Minnesota State Music Hall of Fame. The marching band has been the official escort band for the Minneapolis Aquatennial Parade since the parade began in 1940.
