What's New?

OJP Offices Are Currently Closed

​Thank you for contacting the Department of Public Safety Office of Justice Programs. OJP offices are currently closed following Gov. Tim Walz 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.

The COVID-19 emergency has touched every Minnesotan’s life in one way or another. Most of us are staying home much more than we’re accustomed to. For some, it provides a chance to spend more time with our families and pets. But for others, home is the most dangerous place they can be.

That’s because, for many domestic abuse survivors, a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic just makes things worse. Learn how the pandemic affects domestic abuse and how you can help in this DPS blog.
