Welcome to the East Grand Forks Police Department

Hello!  The goal of the East Grand Forks Police Department is to provide a safe and secure environment for our citizens and the visitors to our community.  We will seek to provide this through a combination of crime prevention programs, education and enforcement efforts.  East Grand Forks is located in the heart of the Red River Valley in Northwestern Minnesota, right across the Red River from Grand Forks, North Dakota.  East Grand Forks enjoys the advantages of being part of the larger Grand Forks/East Grand Forks Metropolitan area yet still maintains a certain small town charm.  We hope you enjoy our community and we will strive to provide you with the best possible service.  Feel free to browse through our website.  We think you will find a great deal of valuable information.  If you have additional questions feel free to contact us. 

Sincerely,

Michael S. Hedlund - Chief of Police

Mission

The mission of the East Grand Forks Police Department is to assure the protection of all persons and property, maintain the peace and order of the community, and to provide a safe and secure environment for all. 

Review the Proposed In-Car and Body Worn Camera Policy

It is the intention of the East Grand Forks Police Department to implement a Body Worn Camera Program in early 2018.  Minnesota Statute 626.8473 requires that a local law enforcement agency must provide an opportunity for public comment before it purchases or implements a portable recording system.  At a minimum, the agency must accept public comments submitted electronically or by mail, and the governing body of the jurisdiction over the budget of the law enforcement agency must provide an opportunity for public comment at a regularly scheduled meeting.

Comments should be either e-mailed to or mailed to:

East Grand Forks Police Department
Attn:  Chief Michael Hedlund
520 Demers Ave
East Grand Forks, MN 56721

A public hearing on this program will be held at the beginning of the East Grand Forks City special meeting that is scheduled for Tuesday January 9, 2018 at 5:00 PM in the Training Room at East Grand Forks City Hall.

While the Department Directive is intentionally left generic to allow for changing technology (different brands, etc. that may be used in the future) it is the Department’s intent, pending City Council approval, to purchase both in-car video and body-worn camera systems from WatchGuard.  Additional information on these systems may be found at the company website at: www.watchguardvideo.com
