Joint Community Police Partnership

updated: Friday, April 21, 2017

What is the Joint Community Police Partnership?

The Joint Community Police Partnership (JCPP) is a collaborative effort of the cities of St. Louis Park, Richfield, Hopkins, Bloomington, Brooklyn Park, and Brooklyn Center; Hennepin County and the Northwest Hennepin Human Services Council. JCPP helps citizens and officers build a bridge of trust and lifelong positive relationships.

JCPP Mission Statement

Our mission is to enhance communication and understanding between law enforcement and multicultural residents of these cities. By building trust and communication, we'll ultimately improve the safety and livability of these communities.

Ways to Be Involved

  • New Americans Academy: A class for adult community members, especially immigrants and refugees, who want to learn more about police procedures and laws
  • Teen and Youth Academies: Organized in collaboration with area elementary and high schools to provide opportunity to learn more about the police and laws.
  • Community Meetings and Informational Q&A Sessions: Held periodically by police officers at community locations. Topics are tailored to the needs and interests of the audience.

Multicultural Advisory Committee (MAC)

The Multicultural Advisory Committee (MAC) includes people who live and/or work in St. Louis Park. The committee meets monthly with police staff to discuss topics important to their communities. The meetings are an opportunity for two-way communication and a way to enhance mutual understanding between police and the community.

How To Be Involved in MAC

St. Louis Park Police are looking for members to serve on the MAC. We are seeking members who:

  • Live or work in St. Louis Park or are otherwise significantly connected to St. Louis Park
  • Accept persons different than themselves and are respectful of persons of different faiths
  • Have an effective network within the community
  • Will work cooperatively to enhance relationships between all cultural communities and police

If you are interested in serving on MAC, you will be asked to:

  • Complete this application and submit it to Afton Martens at
  • Pass a criminal background check
  • Interview with representatives of the Joint Community Police Partnership Administration, which makes the final selection of who will serve on the MAC
