​Time for a Career Change? Consider the State Patrol.

"I need to get out of here."

If you’ve said that to yourself while looking around your workplace, it may be time for a change.

You could be patrolling our state roads and keeping Minnesotans safe. If that sounds good, consider applying for the Minnesota State Patrol’s Law Enforcement Training Opportunity (LETO) Program. The state patrol is seeking college educated women and men. No law enforcement experience required.

Ready to apply? Applications are being accepted until Feb. 15.

There’s someone we’d like you to meet …

Commissioner John Harrington

The new year is definitely a time for new beginnings. Maybe you’ve started a new exercise routine. Maybe you plan to start your own business this year.

Here at the Department of Public Safety, we’re in the middle of our own new beginning: We’re welcoming Commissioner John Harrington. He certainly knows his way around public safety and public service: He’s been in law enforcement for 40 years.

In our latest blog, you’ll learn more about our new commissioner and his vision for the Department of Public Safety.
