On National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day Jan. 9, Governor Tim Walz announced the work of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) in cooperation with other state agencies as well as community and local law enforcement partners to keep people and communities across Minnesota safe. 

In 2022, DPS recovered nearly 500 firearms, assisted with 99 crime scene investigations, and helped Minnesotans recover from three federal natural disasters that caused nearly $50 million in damages.
