The Minnesota State Patrol recently competed in the national Best Looking Cruiser Contest put on by the American Association of State Troopers.

It was announced by the State Patrol on their Facebook page that they took third place and will be featured in the 2018 America's Best Looking Cruiser Calendar. The complete list of the 13 finalists was:

1st - Georgia State Patrol
2nd - West Virginia State Police
3rd - Minnesota State Patrol
4th - Tennessee Highway Patrol
5th - North Carolina State Highway Patrol
6th - Alabama Law Enforcement Agency

Net proceeds of the calendar sales will benefit the American Association of State Troopers Foundation, which that provides educational scholarship to dependents of member troopers.

Our condolences to Wisconsin and Iowa and North and South Dakota for not making the list. These have always been good looking cruisers.
