DPS Provides Guidance to Law Enforcement Related to Gov. Walz’s Stay at Home Order

​The Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) has sent a letter to local law enforcement agencies regarding the enforcement of Gov. Tim Walz’s executive order directing Minnesotans to stay home to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Among DPS’ recommendations is that law enforcement agencies attempt to educate instead of taking an enforcement approach. See the letter for all of DPS’ recommendations. For more information about the Stay at Home order, see these FAQs on the Governor’s website.
