--Amber Alerts-- Since 2002, only 33 Amber Alerts have been issued. Here are a couple questions that are often asked about the Amber Alert System. What is an Amber Alert? An Amber Alert is broadcasted to the public detailing the descriptions and other vital information within the first couple crucial hours after a child abduction. How does an Amber Alert work? The Amber Alert requires law enforcement to meet the following two criterion when evaluating non-familial child abductions. 1)The AMBER Plan should be activated when a child 17 years of age or younger is abducted and there is reason to believe the victim is in imminent danger of serious bodily injury or death. AND, 2)There is information available to disseminate to the public which could assist with the safe recovery of the victim and/or the apprehension of the suspect. How can I get notified if an Amber Alert is issued at no cost?

Yesterday was a blatant reminder to not only slow down when it snows, but to also be cognizant of your surroundings. Fortunately, no fatalities resulted in this incident. Here are a couple safety tips for motorists while school buses are present: 1) Motorists must stop at least 20 feet from a school bus that is displaying red flashing lights and/or its stop arm is extended when approaching from the rear and from the opposite direction on undivided roads. 2) Red flashing lights on buses indicates students are either entering or exiting the bus. 3) Motorists are not required to stop for a bus if the bus is on the opposite side of a separated roadway (median, etc.) — but they should remain alert for children. For more information, go to: https://dps.mn.gov/DIVISIONS/OTS/SCHOOL-BUS-SAFETY/Pages/default.aspx

The Rosemount Fire Department and Rosemount Police Department faced off last weekend in our first EVER Guns vs. Hoses!! The final score was 14-8, with the Police Department pulling away with the W. It was an amazing event which took a lot of hard work and dedication from each Rosemount Department, RAHA, RHS Boys Hockey, The American Cancer Society and several other volunteers! Thank-you to everyone who donated and made this event a success. Over $1,500 was collected and donated to the American Cancer Society. We are looking forward to doing this event in the future! Our goal is possibly January of 2019! Until then, one of the top questions for both departments during the background process will be, "Do you play hockey?" :-) !!! (Just kidding)!!

Overnight, Officers responded to a neighborhood located in the East part of town for a report of suspicious activity. Due to the instant and vigilant report by a neighbor, Officers were able to apprehend the suspicious parties a short distance from the residence, who were later charged with burglary. Thanks to the fast acting neighbors for contacting the Rosemount Police Department and allowing us time to respond to the area and apprehend the suspects within a short period of time. As always, do not be afraid to call 911 when you believe suspicious activity is occurring.
