The thing about being the Department of Public Safety is that safety information needs to be … well, public in order to work. To get the word out, we use all kinds of channels: TV, radio, billboards, and of course social media – but one of our most valuable public safety communications assets is the person you see when you look in the mirror.
Our goal is to make Minnesota a safer place in which to work, play and live, and we need you to help us get the message out.
To find out how you can help spread our public safety messages, read our latest blog.
