Making our communities safer

Owner Agencies

Bloomington Police & Fire

The mission of the Bloomington Police Department is to provide excellence in policing by protecting, serving and partnering with our community to improve its quality of life.

The City maintains a 150-person volunteer Fire Department, one of the largest of its kind in the country. The excellent fire protection provided by the Fire Department has resulted in an ISO Class III fire rating for Bloomington.
Eden Prairie Police & Fire

The Eden Prairie Police Department was built around a strong belief in prevention and customer service. However, for us to be successful in these areas, and our enforcement efforts, we continue to require help from the public. We are very interested to hear from you. Your ideas, questions, concerns, and tips are important to us. Please feel free to contact a member of our very qualified and professional staff with your needs.

It is the vision of the Eden Prairie Fire Department to be known as an innovative and progressive fire department. We strive to offer the best available education and training to our members. We are committed to providing an environment that fosters teamwork among members. We desire to have an atmosphere of open communication, which promotes the health and welfare of individual members.
Edina Police & Fire

As a first ring suburb with a significant retail area and three major commuter freeways, Edina has a variety of law enforcement challenges. The Police Department faces these challenges with a dedicated group of officers, dispatchers and support staff who consistently deliver outstanding police services. In 1999, 96 percent of the community affirmed this by rating our service as excellent or good.

The mission of the Edina Fire Department is to serve the community by protecting lives, property and the environment in a safe, efficient and professional manner. The Fire Department is responsible for extinguishing fires, providing paramedic advanced life support medical service, fire prevention and the maintenance of firefighting equipment and fire department facilities. In addition, the Department enforces laws and ordinances pertaining to fire safety.
Minneapolis / St Paul Airport Police

Larger than some municipal police departments, the Airport Police Department is comprised of more than 85 sworn officers, detectives, K-9 units, undercover and community service officers. Governed by the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC), Airport Police patrol the terminals, roadways and airfield, highways adjacent to the airport, in addition to assisting neighboring law enforcement agencies.
