Public Safety Announcements by Nixle
You need fast and accurate information to keep yourself, your family, and your business safe during emergency and crisis situations. You need to receive Nixle emergency messages from the Chaska Police Department.

In 2009, the Chaska Police Department began using the Nixle text and email messaging system, developed by Nixle LLC, to notify community members of important public safety announcements. Past announcements have included advisories for missing persons, alerts for dangerous fugitive, and notifications of emergency road closings. Use the messages to know when to look out, lock down or avoid certain areas. We do not inundate you with unnecessary announcements and you will receive no spam or advertising. Nixle is safe and reliable and you chose whether to receive the emergency messages by text, email or both.

Signing up is easy and free (standard text charges may apply depending on your cell phone plan). Go to to learn more and to sign up today.
If you have any questions please contact the Chaska Police Department at 952-448-4200.

Neighborhood Crime Watch
If you have a neighborhood group who would like to start a crime watch program, please email the police station.

Crime Watch is a group of neighbors looking out for neighbors. It’s getting to know each other and becoming familiar with the normal comings and goings of the neighborhood. This process helps neighbors identify things that are out of the ordinary like strange vehicles or suspicious persons. We encourage everyone to look out for each other. Two of ten people feel like they don’t want to bother the police. Believe us, it is not a bother. We want the call!
