MPD's Email Crime Alert System: Why Subscribe?
To get crime alerts and to make our service more effective, sign up for crime alerts.
Please fill in the online form as completely and specifically as possible.
How you help by subscribing:
- Having your location on file helps us send you information more specific to your needs, and to work with you as our Neighborhood Policing Plans are formulated, executed, and reviewed.
- It helps us to improve our communications with you, by both narrowing our focus to your neighborhood level when it comes to crime alerts and advisories. We continue to send precinct and sector information as needed. You can ask for just notices concerning your neighborhood, or for as many neighborhoods as you are involved with in partnership with us to reduce crime.
- This service includes several alert categories, to send appropriate crime reports to you based on your line of work, service in the community, or security capacity at your place of business.
- Your detailed sign-up also helps us to determine what areas of the city we aren’t reaching. Knowing where our subscribers live or work will help us to determine which blocks in Minneapolis need block leaders, crime prevention volunteers and general alert contacts.
- This link also gives you with the opportunity to subscribe to many of the City’s other email notification lists such as snow emergency alerts and City Council notices.
We are committed to keeping you in the loop regarding current crime trends and opportunities for involvement in crime prevention. Our Crime Prevention Specialists send many emails to our lists annually. These emails include crime alerts, meeting notices and crime maps, and requests for community impact statements.
This service is provided at no charge to you, and your contact information is kept strictly confidential. You may unsubscribe from one or all of your lists at any time. If you have any questions regarding crime alerts or crime and safety issues in your area, don’t hesitate to contact your Sector Lieutenant & Crime Prevention Specialist Contacts (pdf).
Thanks for your continued commitment to crime prevention and partnership with the Minneapolis Police Department.
