A Message from Chief Knight
100% Wellness ... !

For the past six-years the City of Chaska has sponsored an Employee Wellness program for all full-time city employees. In the hope of having as many people as possible in the program a friendly competition between city departments has taken place. At the end of each year the department that has had the largest number of employees participating wins the challenge contest. We are please to report that for the 6th year in a row the Police department has won the contest.

Congratulations CPD Officers & Staff
Here's to Your Health ...


The Minnesota Crime Prevention Association (MCPA) is a statewide, non-profit organization made up of citizens, law enforcement officers, and crime prevention practitioners who work together to promote, develop, and advance crime prevention programs. MCPA and its members foster cooperation, encourage the exchange of information, provide leadership, and seek involvement from all segments of society to expand, improve and develop crime prevention programs throughout Minnesota.

The MCPA is responsible for the operation and support of many statewide programs, training events, promotional items and most importantly crime prevention information and resources. These include the coordination of Night to Unite and Crime Free Multi-Housing. The annual conference hosted by the MCPA is held in October each year.

CPD Community Partnership Officer Julie Janke was recently installed as the Vice President of the MCPA organization.

Congratulations Officer Janke.
