MPD Community Chaplains

The Minneapolis Police Department is excited to welcome our new "Community Chaplains" into our Precincts.  The team is made up of a diverse set of faith leaders who will help MPD officers connect with the community. It's a proactive approach that will ensure better communication with residents and foster community relationships. The chaplains have an active presence in their assigned precincts and respond to critical incidents throughout the city. Please make them feel welcome as they will be a big part of the conversation between police and community.
