Sebeka Police Department News

The march of the great pumpkins is upon us again. If you are heading out to the stand this weekend be safe. Check stands and blinds for fall and trip hazards beforehand. Remember, treat every hunter as if they were loaded. Don't drink and hunt! Aim small, miss small. Good luck everyone and again, be safe!

PSA, There have been numerous theft complaints in surrounding communities recently. Low lifes have been going into people's vehicles and out buildings lately. Keep an eye out for any suspicious activity around your hood. Thefts are up this time of year at cabins and hunting shacks or really any area of opportunity. Keep car doors locked when you park it and maybe even invest in pesky trail cams. Remember to call dispatch right away if you see anything out of the ordinary.

Names of the individuals are not being released at this time.

Public announcement to the nerd that ran from an Officer last week on a dirt bike. You are ruining it for others when you do wreckless stuff like this. ATV's Snowmobiles and side by side UTV's are allowed in town as long as the operator is of age with an endorsement or proper training. The Ordinance is still 15 mph in town for these machines. As for a dirt bike, no dice. Dirt bikes or Off Highway Motorcycles (OHM) are never allowed on public roadways unless licensed, insured, have proper equipment and operator has an endorsement to operate. P.S. Fleeing an Officer is a felony and can result in felony forfeiture. Meaning we will take you to jail and sell the dirt bike or keep it to do wicked jumps and wheelies. Thank you to the community that cooperates with us and stays in compliance. For the parents out there, you can be charged for allowing operation of such machines if you let jr get on and go. We are still a small town and will work with the community. Had sport just stopped and spoke with the Officer he could have been educated, instead you crossed a line and the department can always use a bike to sell/ride.

Adult male found on Hwy 23, South of 12. The individuals were nice enough to bring the dog 6 miles or more away from where found to a local resident in town. If you know where he belongs contact us in PM or dispatch at 218 631 7600.

We are under way cleaning up folks. Bring us your junk if you live in town.

Notice to local dog owners, it is against city ordinance to walk your dogs off leash. Dogs kept in city limits will be registered with the city clerk. The annual fee is $10.00 per animal per year.(confusing I know) Fine for dog at large is $50.00 per offense, fine for unregistered animal is $50.00 per animal. When observed happening it will be noted and a courtesy letter will be sent to the animal owner. We do not always have time to stop and talk to every rebel with out a leash, but town is small enough to know who it is. Individuals refusing to comply may be issued an administrative offense citation, payable to the city directly. Habitual offenders will be gifted a state citation with opportunity to explain to the Judge why you struggle with this concept. The department is aware most residents are understanding and follow the city ordinance, so this message is not for them. Any questions, feel free to send us a message.

PSA, School will be back in session soon, the sign is back up. And all of the stop signs around town at intersections are still fully functional. So watch out for the little people on the roadway going to and from.

We would like to clear the air before anymore pollution is introduced in to it. Regarding the Review Messenger article found on page 2 in the letter to the editer. The Sebeka Police Department nor its Officers had anything to do with the incident.

Happy Red Eye Days All, play safe this weekend. If you over do it at the bar we have a car. We are not a taxi service and subject to emergency calls at any time. So if you party too hardy give the Officer on duty a call for a ride. We would rather go the extra mile for our residents than have to pick up the pieces of the scene of a crash. If you need to call for a ride remember to be respectful please, we don't need to hear about how dumb the police are. Thanks 218-639-5788. No more than 2 people per trip.

PSA. It is that time of year again folks. Officers will be out giving notices to properties in need of care. If you have rubbish, long grass or discarded items in your yard it needs to be cleaned up. If you feel stressed out by having to clean your yard, just remember Al Bundy once scored 4 touchdowns in a single game for Polk High in the 1966 city championship. If you are old enough to understand this reference, you are old enough to adult and help the town look good for the upcoming town celebration.

To local residents, the Sebeka Public Pool is open as of today from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
