COMPLAINT In most instances, we believe Minot Police officers work in partnership with citizens and that our contacts with citizens are positive. To ensure we function efficiently while maintaining the rights of the citizens we protect, Minot Police Officers are trained to follow a series of policies and procedures, and work within the guidelines of local, state, and federal laws.

Therefore, we have established procedures for citizens to report their concerns.
