There have been rumors in the community and on the internet of people knocking on doors and asking to check your “taps" or water. In Bloomington specifically, the people are claiming to be City officials warning of unsafe water. The claims are false. With this happening in another city and our department hearing of similar rumors, we want to remind people to not fall for scams and check for credentials before letting anyone in their home. ALL city workers have ID cards with their name and department on them. If someone does not have proper credentials, they seem to be not "right" or for any other reason, call 9-1-1 and ask for an officer to come out to verify who they are. Have a great day!
Winter will arrive...eventually! Get prepared now. Read the November Police Bullets Newsletter for great tips! http://www.coonrapidsmn.gov/Archive.aspx?ADID=565
Wednesday 11/23 starts extra DUI enforcement. Please plan for a safe and sober ride home. It would not be a fun and festive way to start the holiday season with a DUI or worse yet involved in a crash where someone is hurt or killed. Let's make it the safest holiday yet!
Today is the last day to apply for our Community Service Officer position. Come work for our great department and help the community! https://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/coonrapidsmn
On 11/9/2017, CRPD made a traffic stop. Inside the vehicle, the officer found a mom and dad with 5 small children. They told the officer they were homeless and were planning to sleep in their car. Temperatures that night were going to be around 10 degrees above zero. The officer was afraid that the family, especially the children, might freeze if they slept in the car overnight. The officer attempted to find emergency shelter for the family through our normal channels, but had no luck securing it. The officer then helped transport the family to a local motel where the officer paid for the room out of their own pocket. The officer doesn't want to be named nor receive any recognition, but we, at the department, want to share this story publicly because these kinds of stories aren't always told, but this work happens each and every day in our great nation.
Now Hiring: Part-time Community Service Officer. Apply online: https://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/coonrapidsmn?
Please remember this evening while you are out to be cautious driving. With all of the little ghosts and goblins (or Paw Patrol characters!) that will be out going door to door for trick or treats, we want to make sure everyone has fun tonight. For all of the adults out there, please arrange a sober ride, whether friends, Uber, Lyft or a taxi, or other arrangements to have a safe Halloween.
Reminder: This is today.
This Saturday: An opportunity to safely dispose of unused prescription medications. No needles will be accepted. For more details: http://www.coonrapidsmn.gov/Calendar.aspx?EID=1785

We would like to share an example of work that gets done every day by police officers around the country but often goes un-noticed, and officers don't want any recognition but we still want to share this with you. Our officers were called to check the welfare of a person. They met up with our citizen who was scared. They were invited into the residence. They found that the person had no food, their prescriptions had run out and they had no way to make outgoing calls. Our officers made contact with the ACBC food self who set the person up with regular deliveries including by 4 p.m. that day, contacted their health care provider to get their medications started again and called a faith-based organization to help in their assistance. The next day CRPD officers also followed up with Anoka County social services to make sure they had received our report and could provide the best service for the person. Once again, while this happened here in Coon Rapids, this work happens every day with officers all over the country...work that is often unnoticed.
We can't thank our wonderful citizens and bussinesses enough for your support! Thanks to Ms. Tinker, Midwest One Bank and everyone else for the wonderful treats and coffee on "Coffee with a Cop" day!
