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... we continue to require help from the public. Your ideas, questions, concerns, and tips are important to us.

The vision of the Eden Prairie Fire Department is to be known as an innovative and progressive fire department. We are committed to providing an environment that fosters teamwork among members. 


Edina Police & Fire

As a first ring suburb with a significant retail area and three major freeways, Edina Police Department has a variety of challenges. We face these challenges with dedicated officers, dispatchers, and support staff who consistently deliver outstanding police services.

The Edina Fire Department is responsible for extinguishing fires, providing advanced life support medical service and educating the community on fire prevention issues. The department also 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), the Airport Police patrol the terminals, airfield, roadways, and highways adjacent to the airport, in addition to assisting neighboring law enforcement agencies.
