Officer Bevan Blauert


At the Minneapolis Police Department, we really value getting our “Cops out of Cars” to increase our positive community contacts and get to know our residents and business owners on a first name basis. Fifth Precinct Officer Bevan Blauert, the MPD’s 2014 Officer of the Year, could be the most popular person to walk the streets of Uptown. Everyone knows him as “Butch!” In addition to responding to more than 1,200 calls for service in one year, he made numerous arrest and responded to more than 75 calls for a “Crisis Intervention Trained Officer.”During that same time span, he’s busted shoplifting rings and bike theft suspects; proving that getting to know folks goes a long way towards keeping our community safe.
