Crime Alert Notice

Recently, there have been several reported incidents of stolen cell phones, wallets and other personal property at local businesses and restaurants. The incidents have involved unknown parties taking these items that are located in purses and bags that are being left unattended.

  • Never leave your purse/bag/briefcase unattended.
  • Always make sure that your purse/bag/briefcase is closed by a zipper, button or large flap.
  • Never leave your purse or bag draped over the back of the chair.
  • Look for a hook under your table to hang your purse/bag on. If there is no hook, place it under the table and hook the strap, if longer, around your leg.
  • Carry your purse/bag/briefcase with you if you leave, even if it will only be a few seconds.

Please immediately report all suspicious activity in your business:

  • Call 911 or (952) 924-2618 (non-emergency)
  • Educate your customers/employees on crime prevention strategies. If you would like a police officer to assist crime prevention training, please call our Community Outreach Officer at (952) 924-2661.

Be Aware of Scams

The St. Louis Park Police Department wants residents to be aware of various scams that are designed to swindle money and/or personal information. These can include lottery scams — in which people receive phony notices indicating they have won a sum of money — or other similar scam letters, which are often sent by email.

Scams can also be perpetrated by businesses when they offer various products and services. Here are some tips from the Police Department to avoid being the victim of a scam:
  • Do your homework when hiring a contractor, auto repair shop or other service in or out of the home. Contact the Better Business Bureau for information and ask for references from the company or facility representative.
  • Talk with family, friends and neighbors on who they may recommend for your specific need. Past experience shows this is a good way to locate a reputable contractor and/or repair facility.
  • Retain trusted contractor and/or repair facility information for future reference.
  • Be aware of door-to-door solicitors and contractors/handymen selling their services. Some may be legit; others may not. Solicitors need to obtain a license to sell door-to-door in St. Louis Park.
  • If unsure about recommended work, get a second opinion from another contractor and/or repair facility — you have that right as a consumer.
  • Read through contracts and have the person you are dealing with explain it thoroughly if you do not understand it before signing.
  • Never give cash as a down payment or to pay for the completed work. Paying by check or credit card will give you a running record of payment. Be wary of companies who do not accept anything for payment but cash.
  • Visit the MN State Attorney General’s Office website and the MN Department of Public Safety website for further information on lottery scams.
  • Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
If you believe you were the victim of a scam, you can call the police department's non-emergency line at (952) 924-2618.
