Vision Statement
As an law enforcement and community stakeholder, we commit ourselves to helping provide an exceptionally safe and secure community for all our residents, businesses, visitors and those who we work with in the City of Brooklyn Center with great dignity and respect. As a first-ring suburb, we address many urban issues, but keep in mind the hometown feel of Brooklyn Center.

A variety of prevention, response, and community support services exist to address basic needs, as well as emerging issues. We encourage you to take advantage of all our programs to ensure your family stays safe and our community remains a great place to live, work, and recreate.

Our Organization
Our department is made up of 49 licensed, full-time police officers and 22 full and part-time non-sworn staff. These dedicated men and women respond to questions, calls for service, investigations, non-emergency and emergency situations. We have crime prevention programs established for public education, youth and schools, cultural diversity, neighborhoods, and businesses. Wonderful opportunities exist to be a public safety volunteer and help make our community even better.
