John Harrington

Chief of Police

Chief Harrington has been a strong proponent of community-oriented policing during his 40-year career in law enforcement and has long advocated for increased diversity in police department staffing.

Under his leadership since 2012, the Metro Transit Police Department (MTPD) has transformed into one of the most responsive and diverse police agencies in the state, and it has become a leader in addressing issues of homelessness and youth violence in the Twin Cities.

Harrington has been recognized by the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association and the Minnesota Public Transit Association as its Transit Professional of the Year for his efforts to make the MTPD’s police force reflective of the community it serves.

Harrington began his law enforcement career in 1977 with the St. Paul Police Department (SPPD). In 2004, he became the SPPD's 39th chief of police, a position he held until 2010, when he was elected to the Minnesota State Senate representing District 67 in St. Paul. He resigned from the Senate in 2012 when he became MTPD’s seventh chief of police.

In 2011, Harrington helped launch Ujamaa Place, a nonprofit agency that works with African-American men in St. Paul to help them transition out of prison or gangs and become productive community members. Harrington was the agency's CEO until 2012, and he continues to serve as the organization’s board chair.

Harrington received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion from Dartmouth College with a minor in Chinese language and earned a Master's degree in Education from the University of St. Thomas. He is also a graduate of the FBI National Academy, the National Executive Institute and the Police Executive Research Forum. He is currently enrolled in a doctoral program in Leadership at St. Mary's University of Minnesota.
