Park Police & Public Safety

The Minneapolis Park Police Department is committed to ensuring safe parks, recreation centers, and recreation programs across Minneapolis.

As the independent law enforcement agency governed by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB), our first priority is making sure that we support the mission of the MPRB, in part, "to provide places and recreational opportunities for all people to gather, celebrate, contemplate and engage in activities that promote health, well-being, community, and the environment." To that end, we work closely with MPRB field staff, in every division, to ensure that crime and safety concerns are addressed holistically; safety is not merely the obligation of the Park Police - it is everyone's responsibility.

It is our sincere hope that all of your visits to the #1 urban park system in the country are safe. Although we work proactively and strive to prevent crime, if you encounter suspicious or illegal behavior, please call 911 immediately. If you have questions or general safety concerns, please contact us.
