OJP Remains Open – All Activities Are Being Done Remotely

​Thank you for contacting the Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs. OJP offices are currently closed following Gov. Tim Walz's executive order directing Minnesotans to stay at home. OJP continues to offer all services and support remotely. All staff will be checking emails and phone messages regularly. We will be processing mail on a very limited basis, so some responses may be delayed. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Domestic Violence Programs Remain Open, Help is Available

If you or someone you know is experiencing violence, help is available.

Domestic violence programs remain open to serve people experiencing relationship abuse. If you are experiencing violence, call the Minnesota Day One Crisis Line - a statewide 24-hour hotline for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault, and sex trafficking - at 866-223-1111 or visit their website.
