The mission of the St. Louis Park Joint Community Police Partnership (JCPP) is to enhance communication and understanding between law enforcement and multicultural residents. Through the partnership, we are working together to build safer communities.

The JCPP is a collaborative effort of the cities of St. Louis Park, Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Richfield, Bloomington, Hopkins; Hennepin County; and the Northwest Hennepin Human Services Council. 

How to get involved

Multicultural Advisory Committee

The Multicultural Advisory Committee (MAC) is a culturally, professionally and educationally diverse volunteer group that advises the St. Louis Park Police Department on how to better serve, communicate with and understand the many cultures that reside in, work in or visit the St. Louis Park community.

Learn more about the committee and how to get involved by visiting the Multicultural Advisory Committee page.
New Americans Academy
The New Americans Academy is a class for adult community members, especially immigrants and refugees, who want to learn more about police procedures and laws. The purpose of the academy is to create a situation for positive, non-emergency interactions between the community and the police, as well as to encourage community members to learn about local laws, how the police work and how to protect themselves.
Class topics include:
  • Police services
  • Traffic safety
  • City codes
  • Fire safety
  • Criminal justice system
  • Domestic violence
  • Graduation

Classes are typically held every spring and are once a week for six weeks.
