Whether you are leaving home on vacation or just down to our local shops for a short trip, please be sure to lock up your house before you leave. If you are out and about, please be sure to hide your valuables from view. Never leave packages, electronics, purses, or any other items of value on in the passenger area of your car. Lock them in the trunk so you can have peace of mind while you are out enjoying our local shops. Happy Holidays from the members of the Twin Cities Police Authority.
