The St. Francis Police Department has launched its new “Crime Tip Line”
1-763-267-6199. This new innovative program will allow citizens the ability to call in tips about ongoing or suspicious criminal activity within our city. It is not uncommon for citizens to be hesitant about reporting possible criminal activity out of fear of retaliation. This new program will allow callers to remain anonymous and leave messages without ever giving out there name on a recorded line. The “Crime Tip Line” will be checked on a regular basis for the Police Department to investigate the information that is received.
SNOW PLOW ROUTES: Containers of painted lath have been placed at the Police and Public Works Facility and at City Hall. Residents can use these to mark the edges of the City roads/yards for the snow plows.
SNOWMOBILE PERMITS: Contact the Police Department (763-753-1264) or stop by during regular business hours to obtain a permit for a Motorized Recreational Vehicle
