The Minnesota POST Board often receives requests for summary statistics. The links below address some of the questions that we get concerning state-wide statistics regarding peace officers, licensing and the agencies that employ peace officers.
As you review these statistics, please keep in mind that much information is constrained by data practices laws and some information is simply not gathered by the POST Board. For example, the POST Board does not gather information on the race or ethnicity of peace officers. Also, while we try to keep this data up to date annually, agency makeup, numbers of officers, gender of officers, etc. fluctuate on a regular basis.
Requests for additional statistics that you would like to see added to this page can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Those requests will be evaluated in terms of data practices laws and the capabilities of existing information technology systems.
