Technology is rapidly changing our world including the work done each day by the men and women of Minnesota law enforcement.  Training is key to ensuring police are at their best. Departments are constantly working to recruit and qualify new officers and must also update their skills as new training mandates are approved.

The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Foundation (MCPF) supports the Wear the Badge education and outreach campaign aimed at recruiting new officers.  It also provides annual Wear the Badge Scholarships to students studying law enforcement at an accredited Minnesota college. The scholarship application period will open later this year.

A donation supports the next generation of police officers and helps ensure Minnesota law enforcement leaders remain some of this country's most knowledgeable, well-prepared and progressive police professionals.
