CPD's Weekly Letter

Snow is starting to hit the streets by creating slick and white out conditions. Please make sure you have your headlights are on and drive with due care!

**** This is Dosier. He is up for adoption through Wags and Kisses*** He is back with his foster mom for the night. Where do I belong? Call 911 if you know this dog. It's not chasing skunks under a shed behind a house.

Heads up to our community. We as officers, may call you on the phone but we will NEVER ask you for money or payment over the phone for any reason. Please pass this information along, especially to those who dont have social media, including our senior citizens who are commonly the target to such scams. DPD has taken several calls where officer names have been used in trying to convince people to settle payment over the phone for warrants.

A little too close to home! Child safety comes first and those who disobey school bus stop arms will be charged accordingly. Always be attentive while driving and give yourself extra time to get to and from your destination. #redmeansstop

CPD Weekly Letter 11.2.18

Don't swerve for deer!! Early this morning officers responded to crash near the intersection of Washington Ave and Hwy 45 where the driver said she swerved to avoid hitting a group of deer in the roadway. The driver crashed over the guard rail, hit a sign, drove through the ditch and ended up back on the guard rail. The driver was uninjured but the vehicle was severely disabled. The deer also escaped unharmed. We want to remind drivers that there is an influx of deer out and about so please use caution.

Officers took a report of a truck stolen from a local business this morning. Please call 911 if you see this 1994 two tone blue Chevy 1-ton pickup truck. It is missing the driver's side rear fender.

Drugs continuing to destroy families across Minnesota. Stop the cycle before it's too late and encourage those struggling with addiction to seek help.

UPDATE! An adult male and two juevnile males have been identified in the theft of the backpack. The backpack has since been recovered and returned to the victim. All three suspects are pending criminal charges. Thank you to all who have expressed their support and offering to help the victim. We appreciate it! To the person who stole a backpack off a bike at Walmart tonight.......please return it as the owner desperately needs the expensive insulin and diabetic monitor equipment that was inside the backpack you took. Thank you!

Happy Halloween! We are dressing up as police officers again this year! We look forward to seeing everyone out trick or treating this evening! Here are some important safety tips before heading out tonight. Come find a squad car for some candy and stickers!

Owner has been found. Please ensure your pets are in compliance with city ordinance. All pets must be microchipped or collared and tagged. Found dog. Please share.

This morning while on patrol, a Cloquet officer observed a male walking on West Prospect Avenue near Balsam Street, it appeared the male was attempting to conceal who he was from the officer. The officer turned around in his squad car and the male took off running through backyards, into the woods. Sgt. Rennquist and K9 Kaylee from FDLPD arrived to assist with locating the individual. A short time after starting a track, K9 Kailee located the subject. The individual was known to Officers. He was arrested on 3 warrants. We can't thank FDLPD and the use of K9 Kaylee enough in getting another bad guy off the streets.

The team effort in this case speaks volumes to the work being done to rid our communities of this poison. Great job by all involved!!!

Go see our friends from the CAFD and their cool fire trucks. They are giving away batteries for smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. They are in the parking lot at L&M until supply of batteries run out.
