 Welcome to the City of St. Francis

The City of St. Francis

Located along the northern edge of Anoka County, the City of St. Francis is a community that is still able to provide its residents with a small town feel while in the shadow of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area. St. Francis has been able to blend rural and city living into a unique community of over 7,000 people. Scenic areas along the Rum River and the realization of having one's own hobby farm have tended to be two of the most common factors that lure people to this northern Anoka County community.

While not a boom town, St. Francis has seen its share of growth over the years. An even mix of urban style residential lots and large acreage hobby farms has provided the city with a number of quality housing developments.

The St. Francis area has a variety of recreational opportunities. The Rum River provides an exceptional setting for the canoeing and fishing enthusiasts. Located within the heart of St. Francis, the Rum River North Park provides easy access to the river.

is the presentation 
along with documents that were provided. 
                                       
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 
their name on a recorded line. he “Crime Tip Line” will be checked on a regular basis for the Police Department to 
investigate the information that is received.   
          

St. Francis Police Department has joined a “Prescription Drug Take Back” Program
