What We DoPhoto of the prison in Bayport, Minn.

The Minnesota State Interagency Agreement requires that Department of Public Safety (DPS) provide an annual fire inspection of the 11 DOC owned Minnesota Correctional Facilities. The DPS is also responsible for inspecting all facilities the commissioner of corrections is required to inspect and license or authorize to operate throughout the state. Read the general requirements.
