Ahh...delicious cookies with valuable life lessons. It’s gonna be a good shift.

#tbt Officers Jacobson and Stepan, 2006. CLPD was very busy moving in to our beautiful new police department at the corner of North Road and Lake Drive. Hard to believe it’s been our home for more than a decade already.

This is Hazel. She was a rescue from Homeward Bound MN. Her human works in our records division, so she stopped in to say hi. Hazel guarded the jail for a while, but that was boring. She tried working on some reports. That wasn’t very interesting either, so she decided to take her human to the park to play instead.

We were lucky enough to have North Metro TV ride with us for a bit today. Stay tuned for a cool story in the coming weeks...

It’s a picture perfect day in Circle Pines! Enjoy it!


The rookies after a long and cold night of training... We train hard so we are ready to act when duty calls.


It’s almost the weekend! Do you have a plan for a sober ride? If not, you’ll probably meet one of our fine officers. Just after midnight officers stopped a vehicle for lane and signaling violations. The driver was subsequently arrested for 4th degree DWI. Just after ‪2:00 PM‬, afternoon shift responded to a report of a drunk driver in the area of Lake Drive and Lexington Avenue. The driver was located and arrested. A preliminary test indicated the driver was over 4 TIMES the legal limit. He was booked on suspicion of 3rd degree DWI. Both of these drivers had a bad day, but it could have been much worse had their poor choices led to the injury or death of one of our citizens. We don’t tolerate drunk driving in our community. We are on patrol day and night for impaired drivers. Plan a sober ride or plan a ride to jail.

40 degrees tomorrow...

Did you know that driving drunk too many times in Minnesota can earn you a felony charge? Last night, Officer Rodriguez stopped a vehicle for speed and found the driver was: - Driving on a cancelled license - Driving without proof of insurance - Drinking out of an open bottle of whiskey - Driving drunk for the 4th time in 6 years The adult female driver was arrested for 1st degree DWI. Her vehicle was towed and held for forfeiture. Her license plates were seized and destroyed. She is being held at the Anoka County Jail and formal charges are expected tomorrow. She is innocent unless proven guilty. Planning a sober ride is easy. The consequences of driving drunk are not.

Neighbors in the area of the house fire scene in Centerville are reporting heavy traffic and people entering to look at the property. Please be respectful of the family that lost their home and the neighborhood. CLPD will have a heavy presence in the area. Thank you.

Today we reflect on 6 officers shot and killed across the U.S. in 5 days. These cops were fathers, sons, and brothers. They lost their lives in service to total strangers. They made the ultimate sacrifice for the communities they were sworn to protect and serve. ...and today, just like every day for the last 42 years, CLPD officers are on duty and on patrol. We stand ready to protect and serve this community. The ongoing and senseless violence against this country's police officers will not deter us from our mission. Our unwavering dedication to our duty serves as our silent protest. If you need us, we will be here. Now and always. #CourageAndCompassion

At 2100 hours CLPD responded to the 1900 block of Prairie Drive on a report of a structure fire. Arriving units found a working fire at a home. No one was injured and the fire was brought under control by firefighters from multiple agencies. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Centennial Fire Department and the Centennial Lakes Police Department. No further information is available at this time.

Drive sober. It could save your life.

Did you know that your officers volunteer in and around the community? One of their favorite spots is the Animal Humane Society in Coon Rapids. Volunteer Bill Jacobson met Cashew today. Believe it or not, Cashew needs a home! In fact, there are over 30 dogs at AHS Coon Rapids that need homes. For more info go to and click on adopt.

Look Sharp/Act Sharp/Be Sharp

Today’s training: care under fire/tourniquet/gun shot wounds....important skills we hope we never need. Did you know that our firefighters train to enter active shooter scenes with us to save lives?
