Weekly District Council Crime Reports
In keeping with the police department's philosophy on community policing, the need to work with each of the 17 district councils is vitally important and necessary. Information on crime trends, neighborhood issues and safety concerns must be distributed to each district council and members of the public in order for the police and community to be effective at combating crime. It is with this cooperation, the police, district councils - and the community are able to work together and successfully confront crime and safety issues in our city.
The District Council reports contain incidents for the following categories: Homicide, Rape, Robbery, Aggravated Assault, Burglary, Theft, Auto Theft, Arson, Simple Domestic Assaults, Vandalism, Narcotics, and Discharge of Firearm.

Ramsey County’s 9-1-1 center alerts residents of local emergency situations by landline phone.
Residents of the City of Saint Paul may sign up to receive these notifications also by text message, e-mail or cell phone at one or multiple locations - such as home or work.
A local emergency is an imminent threat to health and safety affecting those locations you have added to your profile. Examples include:
• Active shooter situation
• A lost child or vulnerable adult in imminent danger
• A search for an armed suspect who officers believe is a threat to others.
You will receive emergency alerts based upon the preferences you choose. For example, you can choose text message first - then email - then cell phone. The alert will be delivered to you in that priority.
On mobile phones, the text message will always be delivered from 89361 or 87844. Phone calls will appear from 651-266-9990. Emails will be delivered from the "@everbridge.net" address.
