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.

Federal Byrne Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Application Notice

The JAG program is designed to improve the criminal justice system and address drug abuse, violence, and crime in Minnesota. Minnesota is submitting the Federal Fiscal Year 2020 application which will focus primarily on intervention programming that is promising practice or evidence-based and fills a criminal or juvenile justice gap. If you would like to discuss this application or provide comment, please contact Tricia Hummel at tricia.hummel@state.mn.us.
