Bureau of Criminal Apprehension

A Division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety

​The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) Investigative Division provides round-the-clock investigative assistance to criminal justice agencies statewide. BCA agents and analysts are positioned in two regional offices (St. Paul & Bemidji) and 11 field offices (Alexandria, Brainerd, Duluth, Grand Rapids, Mankato, Marshall, Moorhead, Rochester, Roseau, St. Cloud and Willmar). Services include investigative, analytical and crime scene responses, as well as long term assistance with complex investigations. These are essential services that many agencies cannot support locally.​
