Safety

People in Minnesota are safe

Minnesota families deserve to be safe and secure. A sense of security in one's home and community contributes to our quality of life.

The state focuses its efforts on reducing the crime rate, reducing repeat criminal offenses, and ensuring emergency responders can provide appropriate, effective response during disasters.

While some catastrophes and disasters are unavoidable, state government programs contribute to keeping people out of harm's way.
