The Coon Rapids Fire Department has a little reminder:

We are so blown away by the generosity of Texas Road House in Coon Rapids, they dropped off Steaks, and a whole bunch of delicious sides for us to enjoy as a thank you for handling the snowpocalypse this past weekend. Thank you Texas Roadhouse!

Over the weekend officers responded to 39 accidents and nearly 100 motorist assists. What we can't quantify are the dozens of occasions we witnessed our residents jumping in to lend a hand with stuck cars etc. We truly do have the BEST residents in our city. We want to throw out an extra special thank you to all the good samaritans, Coon Rapids Fire Dept and our Public Works for such an awesome coordinated effort on dealing with the snowy mess this past weekend.

FYI: plowing update.

True story!

As we are all digging out from the blizzard, stay positive, fishing opener is right around the corner, though, maybe with some equipment modifications 😏 On a more serious note, thank you Coon Rapids Fire Department, and our plow drivers for the great teamwork last night. Roads still may be not so great in areas, it might be a good idea to stay off them unless you absolutely have to.

Taz isn't the only one winning awards around here. This week, Captain Tom Hawley received the Innovation Award for fiscal efficiency (his efforts have saved the city/department some major tax dollars!) and K9 Officer Interna Kim and his partner, Ike were honored for the Community Service Award for always going the extra mile for our community. Join us in thanking them for their dedicated service to Coon Rapids!

On the final day of severe weather week, the theme is heat safety. We know, we know, it feels like a twisted and cruel joke to be talking about heat safety with the impending spring "Snomaggedon" but this infographic has some good tips and we suppose it serves as a good reminder that torturous hot weather is right around the corner.

We know this is not how spring is supposed to work, but we want to warn you of the impending spring snowmageddon upon us starting tonight. Check on your neighbors, get your supplies in order, gas up the snowblower. We are always on duty to help, but we recommend staying in if possible.

Check out our K9, Taz, with all of his awards! he’s was a total rockstar this past weekend at the region 12 narcotics trials in Wright County. He was also honored to bring home medallion awards for narcotics cases he assisted on in the past two years, cases that resulted in locating 280 grams of Meth, and 11 felony narcotics arrests. Fair warning to those who want to bring drugs into Coon Rapids, Taz likes to earn his keep around here, you’ll find yourself behind bars.

You might recognize one of the guys in this pic, he just so happens to work here! *spoiler alert* it's our very own Chief Brad Wise. As we continue with #SexualAssaultAwareness month, we want to direct your attention to an event on May 19th that is near and dear to our hearts, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes- Anoka.

***update*** our office-dog-for-day is going home, his owners are on their way to pick him up. Thank you all for sharing, and your helpful comments. While we are tempted to keep this guy as the official coon rapids police office dog, but our resident k9’s are giving us the side eye and telling us to help this guy find his way home. We aren’t sure where he was picked up at, since someone dropped him off here early, he is a male (husky type breed?) is he yours? If so, call dispatch at 7634271212 ask for CSO Prindle in Coon Rapids. Only other identifying characteristic is a Zimm vet rabies tag, and different colored eyes (one eye has some brown)

Today is day 4 of severe weather week, do you know where to go if there is a tornado? Also, If you hear sirens at 1:45 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. don’t panic! It’s a drill.

***update*** Hobbs is home! Missing! Hobbs is a Four year old male, orange classic tabby, white chest, not declawed, and not neutered. who went missing from the area of 131st ave and Martin St NW (near wildwood park) Help us find Hobbs and get him home safe. If you find him, please call Anoka County non-emergency dispatch at 763-427-1212 and they’ll put you in touch with the coon rapids CSO. Cats tend to end up hiding under porches/decks, so if you live nearby, take a look around your property

Day 3 of severe weather week focuses on flooding. This is a really good one to pay attention to.

Kids at the Head Start event got to check out all sorts of trucks and emergency vehicles. While the fire truck may have been the biggest, the police car is definitely the fastest and a big hit with the kids!

***update****** she’s back home with her family! This little lady is in the backseat of a squad after being caught frolicking the streets of Coon Rapids. Found her in the area of 119th Ln and Grouse st. We believe she’s a pitbull, no collar, tags or microchip. Is she yours? *update* ‭she’s at Dover Kennels, if she’s yours, call them at: (763) 434-7332‬

Severe weather week continues with some tips on lightening safety.

Safety and training is a big part of our job, today several of our officers and detectives proved their skills on deploying stop sticks. What are stop sticks? It is a device we use as a tool to safely end a vehicle pursuit. Check out the video, in the end our very own chief stopped in to prove his skills.
