The City of Sartell Police Department works closely with the community to organize and maintain strong crime prevention efforts.


We have twelve Neighborhood Watch groups of varying levels of organization. They serve as the ‘auxiliary’ eyes and ears for the police department to ensure the safety of their neighborhoods.

We also asked that citizens go to www.tricountycrimestoppers.org where they can provide anonymous tips and view area crime activity.

Another strong component of our crime prevention effort is the Crime-Free Multi-Housing Program. The focus of the program is to extend Neighborhood Watch concepts to apartment complexes and other multiple dwelling sites. We also administer additional prevention programs, such as Operation ID.

Crime prevention techniques and programs are the front line of defense to reduce and prevent crime. Both residential and business community members can take an active role to protect themselves and their property.
