History of the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association

Our Vision

To be the recognized voice for professional law enforcement in Minnesota.

Our Mission

To bring the highest quality police services to the people of Minnesota.

Our Values

Integrity and Honesty Dedication and Commitment Professionalism and Dignity Responsibility and Accountability Innovation and Teamwork Community Service  

The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association reached its 50th birthday in 2004 with over 500 members and an impressive list of programs and services. In 1954 there were 34 charter members led by President Frank Broderius of Hutchinson. The Association was formed as a fraternal organization and Secretary George Roope of the Austin P.D. described one of the immediate benefits of membership as, “one or more get-togethers a year where we exchange experiences and ideas.”  The exchange of experience and ideas remains one of the greatest benefits of the Association today.

Cavers Rofidal

Our first Treasurer, G.R. Cavers, Fairmont P.D. and early member Louis Rofidal, Brainerd P.D.

The initiation fee was $2.00 and each member paid $3.00 a year in dues. The first annual meeting was held at the Albert Lea High School and was followed by a dance for the members and their spouses. Each year we host over 800 people at our annual convention. The four day event features nationally known speakers and an awards banquet that recognizes the great work done by the men and women of law enforcement in Minnesota .

We have come a long way in 50 years but we remain true to the values of our founders. They had a vision for law enforcement and a mission to provide the very highest level of service to our citizens. Today, our Association provides services, training and programs that are designed to fulfill the goals of a small group of dedicated chiefs who first met in the office of the Minneapolis Police Chief in 1954. So many things have changed - but the core values remain the same.
