TO PROTECT WITH COURAGE

TO SERVE WITH COMPASSION

Community Engagement Team

The Community Engagement Team (CET) works to build ties with the various ethnic communities in our city. They work to build trust and strong relationships with members of these communities.    

CET also educates the community and the Minneapolis Police Department about terrorism and overall police/community concerns. They answer questions about Homeland Security issues from both officers and community members.

CET Officers help other officers in more complex cases such as those in which there is a language barrier. Community members can contact CET officers to offer information  that they aren't comfortable telling regular officers or investigators.

They welcome your calls and questions.
