River City Days

Come visit our police department booth at River City Days! We will be there from 4 to 10 PM on Friday, July 24th; 10 AM to 10 PM on Saturday, July 25th and 12 PM to 5 PM on Sunday, July 26th.

We will again be selling bike helmets for $10 and fitting them to you or your children. These helmets retail for $22.95, but we sell at cost to encourage people to be safe!

On Sunday July 26th, we will have inflatables and a bouncy house set up before the kiddie parade and will also be selling pop and water. Please come and support these events as the proceeds go to our Police Explorer Program for uniforms and to fund their ability to compete at competitions.

Missing your bike???

We already have 21 bikes that have been impounded this year! Could one be yours?? Have you reported it missing?  If you are missing your bicycle please contact our department at 952-448-4200 and speak with one of our Community Service Officers; Marelia Garcia or Hunter Panning who would be able to check to see if one is yours.

Many people leave their bicycle unlocked at the library, community center, store, etc  and someone will use that opportunity to “borrow” the bicycle to get home. We receive many calls from people who advise that a bicycle has been lying in their yard for the last week and no one has come to get it. The police department then picks up the bicycle and impounds it. It is stored until someone calls to claim it or it goes in our annual bike sale.

Please lock your bicycle when leaving it unattended. Did you know you can register your bicycle with the police department so it can be returned to you if found? Please contact Officer Janke if you are interested at 952.448.4200
