Todd from Standard Water Control is collecting new or gently used winter coats for the Justin Morneau's Winter Coat Drive to benefit the homeless and less fortunate throughout the Metro area. We placed a box in our police department lobby for anyone who would like to donate. Todd's goal is to collect 2,000 winter coats and jackets! These coats will be distributed in the Twin Cities area by the Salvation Army Harbor Light Center from now till Dec. 9th. You can drop the coats off in our lobby, at 5337 Lakeland Ave N in Crystal or you can call for pickup at 763-219-7134. Let's help Todd reach his goal! Spread the word. Thanks!

Happy Mo-vember! Love, Donut Cop 🍩 👮‍♂️

Last night was a slow night in regards to calls for service but a FUN night for our officers! Shout out to the local merchants who donated candy for the officers to pass out last night! THANK YOU! Now that Halloween is over, it is important that parents assist their children in checking over their candy. Feel free to drop any Reese's Peanut Butter Cups off at the PD and I will gladly check and taste test the candy!

Some may know of him as Rocco, but today he is THOR! 🔨 Thor wishes everyone a FUN & SAFE Halloween! 🎃

For the past 45 years, the 50th and Quail neighborhood has had a block party with a Halloween parade. Officer Saba, Sgt. Kurtz and Sgt. Harrer were lucky enough to be apart of it and lead the parade!

Here at Crystal Police Department, we are fortunate to have a full time Advocate from Cornerstone (a local nonprofit that provides a wide range of services).

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. One in four women will be the victim of domestic violence at some point in her lifetime, and, on average, three women are killed every day at the hands of a current or former intimate partner. These statistics are staggering, but there is help. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, please call Cornerstone's Day One Crisis Line at 1-866-223-1111, text 612-399-9995 or chat at http://dayoneservices.org/.

We've noticed an increase in phone scams. When in doubt, call the police department before sending ANY money. The most common type of call is the grandchild is in jail or you owe the IRS money and will be issued a warrant. These are ILLEGAL and a SCAM!
