Lino Lakes Police Department News

Happy Friday everyone. Justice is wishing you all a safe, enjoyable, and potentially very special weekend. Let's do this Cougars Hockey!! :photo credit CLPD Sgt. Jacobson

We often receive questions about the correctional facilities in Lino Lakes. To help answer some of those questions, we reached out to the Minnesota Department of Corrections and Anoka County Juvenile Corrections. Below is a link to interviews with Superintendent Todd Benjamin and Warden Vicki Janssen. Special thanks to Superintendent Benjamin and Warden Janssen for assisting with this video.

The roads are not great this morning. Please slow down so you can keep it shiny side up... unlike this motorist on 35W.

The Lino Lakes Public Safety Department responded to vehicle crash in the 7600 block of Lake Drive today. Fortunately, no serious injuries were reported. This crash was the result of a multi-jurisdictional pursuit that began in Washington County. Media requests related to this incident are asked to contact The US Marshall's Service PIO at

We often hear comments (some positive, some negative) about the amount of traffic enforcement our officers perform. Tonight this vehicle was disabled on the shoulder of I35W when it was struck by a passing vehicle. Lino Lakes Fire responded and did a great job extricating the driver from the vehicle. Traffic laws are enforced in an attempt to prevent incidents like this.The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating the accident. Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!

We just opened up registration for our 2018 Lino Lakes Public Safety Citizens Academy! The sessions will take place on Thursday evenings, starting March 29th. The academy consists of classroom lectures and hands on training topics including: Defensive Tactics, Vehicle Fire Training Simulator, Prison Tour, Vehicle Extrication, Investigations and much more. Our goal is to build relationships with our citizens as they explore the various roles and responsibilities that those who work in public safety provide to our community. You will have fun, and you will learn something in the process, but don’t take our word for it…read some of the comments of our graduates (Prior PSCA participants, this is the part where we need you to say something nice 😀) Please follow the link for more information and to obtain the application forms

Here is photo evidence of Team Hoses cheating last year. This picture was taken by photographer Spencer Gease right after our goalie was hit with a halligan bar (a tool the firefighters use to shake the lodged Doritos bags out of their vending machine while we are out in the community solving real problems.) Anyway, somehow the refs missed this call, and the game ended in a tie. If you are looking to see how round two of our Guns and Hoses Hockey ends, join us on Monday at the Schwan’s Super Rink in Blaine. The puck drops at 6:15 PM. There will be raffle prizes, silent auction items, games for the kids, chuck-a-puck, and an open family skate after the game. None of this would be possible without all the wonderful businesses and sponsors that have contributed to allow this event to take place again. Thank you! We take jabs at Team Hoses in good fun. The event is really about celebrating our community and our first responders, while slightly above average hockey is played, all in the hopes of raising some money for a local charity, which the recipient this year is the Regions Hospital Burn Center. If you don’t have plans on Monday evening, come on out and say hello.

Coordinators from the Guns “N” Hoses Winter Classic had the opportunity to tour the Regions Hospital Burn Center which will be the recipient of the games donations. The photograph was taken on the 12th floor at the Helipad overlooking St. Paul. The burn center treats approximately 400 patients per year. They pride themselves on not just treating the patient with the burns but also the family with the life changes they experience. They play an important role in a firefighter’s recovery if they are burned in the line of duty. Please consider supporting the cause and come out to the Guns “N” Hoses hockey game February 26th at 6pm at the Schwan’s Super Rink. The game is free and many generous businesses have donated hundreds of dollars worth of prizes to win!. Some of the items include, gift cards, cash, hotel packages, MN Wild tickets and autographed items, Bon Jovi tickets, Jimmy Buffett and the Eagles and many more. After the game come join the players for a family skate.

UPDATE: 0855 - Traffic lights are working and it appears power has been restored. Connexus Energy is reporting a substation out, which is causing power outages on the east side of Lino Lakes. This includes some traffic lights in the area. When traffic lights are out, treat them as stop signs. Come to a complete stop at the intersection and take turns entering the intersection. If two vehicles arrive at the intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the left yields right of way to the vehicle on the right.

**** UPDATE: The class is full. Thank you **** We will be hosting a women's personal safety class on Thursday, 2/15 at 6:30 pm, at the Lino Lakes Police Department. The class is free and will last 1-2 hours. Comfortable attire should be worn as there will be some light hands on activities in addition to group discussion. You wont leave with ninja skills but you will have a better understanding of the role you can play in your own safety. If you would like to attend or have questions, please email Officer Jackie McIntosh at

Congratulations to Quad Press Reporter Shannon Granholm!

Join us tonight at the Tavern on Main!

Please slow down and drive safe this evening. The road conditions are not great right now!

WOW....that was unexpected! Well Vikings fans time to start planning for next year. Post your favorite sports quote to help all us Vikings fans move on and get ready for our undefeated season next year! From Mr. Morgan Wooten, "You learn more from losing than winning. You learn how to keep going." Remember keep it clean sports fans!

We know that this is very late notice, but a resident of ours has two tickets to the NFC Championship game in Philadelphia at Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday, January 21st. They are box seats and he paid $1,500 per ticket, which includes a shuttle to and from the airport, lunch (voucher for a cheesesteak), dinner (probably more cheesesteaks), and a wristband for drinks. He claims that when he purchased these tickets he didn't realize that it's on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place. It's at St Joseph of the Lakes Catholic Church at 6 p.m. Her name is Jessica. She's 5'6", blonde, about 130 pounds, a great cook, loves to fish, but likely will not be much of a football fan after this. She'll be the one in the white dress. Skol!
