A partnership With Minneapolis Public Schools
The Minneapolis Police department, in collaboration with the Minneapolis Public School District, helps maintain safe welcoming environments where students can succeed.
What is a School Resource Officer?
Our School Resource Officers are licensed Minneapolis Police Officers who have been selected to work within the Minneapolis Public School District.
What does a School Resource Officer do?
They formulate problem-solving strategies with M.P.S. staff & other partners that focus on diversion & decriminalization as an alternative to citations or arrests when resolving student related matters.
They develop positive relationships with students, staff & parents through formal and informal interactions, educating, youth programs and mentoring.
School Resource Officers act as liaisons between the school district, student families, our community, criminal justice partners and the Minneapolis Police Department.
They work closely with the district’s Office of Emergency Management – Safety and Security to monitor and assess risks that could affect school operations.
