Safety Through Information Access
The members of the Rosemount Police Department are committed to working with residents and businesses to maintain a safe community. This is done through many efforts, including crime prevention activities, educational efforts, and enforcement of federal and state laws and City ordinances.

We hope, by providing information on the types of crimes that are most often reported within Rosemount and sharing steps that can be taken to prevent crimes, that our residents, businesses, and visitors will become even safer than they already are in our community.

Stopping domestic violence
The Rosemount Police Department takes an active approach to make the community aware of the risks of domestic violence by holding offenders accountable and supporting victims.  The Department works with partners that include the courts, the probation system, and advocacy groups.  One of those groups, 360 Communities, operates Lewis House, a safe haven for women and children. The organization recently produced a brief video on the subject, available on YouTube, to explain the efforts of Rosemount Police and 360 Communities. [View the video.]

Safety Tips
The most important safety tips are to lock your home and vehicles and to store your valuables in a safe location in your home. Since theft from vehicle is the most frequently reported crime in the community, the best prevention step to take is to remove your belongings (cellphones, MP3 players, CDs, laptops, purses, etc.) from your vehicle.

Keeping alert and reporting unusual or suspicious activity is also very important to keep yourself and others safe. Anytime you need police, fire, or medical assistance you should call 9-1-1 and the proper public safety personnel will be sent to assist. You should report any crime or suspicious activity immediately by calling 9-1-1.

All public safety dispatching within Dakota County is handled by the Dakota Communications Center.
