MPD has just over 3,550 officers currently. Sixty-six percent of MPD’s officers are from diverse racial backgrounds and 23 percent of MPD officers are women, while the national average across police departments is 11 percent. MPD is committed to reaching a 30 percent female force by 2030. The bottom line is, the MPD is recruiting to further mirror the communities it serves.
MPD recruits are some of the most educated entering law enforcement, with the majority of new hires having bachelor’s degrees.
