​​​"You saved my life that night."

Trooper Keenan Jones; Jake Bosacker’s mug shot from the night of his DWI; Jake, now sober, at his wedding earlier this yearIn the summer of 2017, 21-year-old Jake Bosacker​ made a promise to himself: No more drinking. He would move home to Minnesota from his college in Texas. Take a semester off. Move back in with his parents and get a job. Sober up. And maybe, finally, follow that lifelong dream of becoming a sworn law enforcement officer. But early in the morning on Sept. 9, 2017, State Trooper Keenan Jones pulled him over for a DWI. Four years later, Jake is back, thanking Trooper Jones for saving his life. Witness their reunion in our blog.


September is National Preparedness Month

​Each September, ​National Preparedness Month raises awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time. The 2021 theme is “Prepare to Protect. Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love." Each week in September, the campaign will focus on a different aspect of preparedness for individuals, families and communities. 

Throughout the month, we encourage you to share preparedness tools and resources with your family, friends, and loved ones. By working together today, we can ensure we are all prepared for the natural and human-made threats of tomorrow. Together, we can build a culture of preparedness!​​​​

The Ongoing Crisis: Traffic Deaths on Minnesota’s Roads

A hand on a steering wheelThe 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day this year continued a distressing trend of traffic deaths. Those 100 days are the most traveled of the year on Minnesota roads, and this year they proved particularly tragic. Preliminary numbers show that 167 people died in traffic crashes during this year's 100 most-traveled days. They accounted for over half of all the 321 traffic deaths through early September this year. People are dying on Minnesota roads in record numbers, and we're doing everything we can to stop it. But we can't do it without your help. Learn more in our ​blog.​
