Divisions

The department is organized in two divisions, described below.

Patrol

The patrol division provides proactive patrol, incident response and first response to medical emergencies in the City of Minnetonka. Community service officers (CSOs) assigned to this division provide domestic animal control and assistance to the patrol division. The city considers traffic enforcement a high priority and has taken a three pronged approach to the issue: engineering, education and enforcement.

Support and investigative services

This division has three components: records, 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point and investigations.

Investigative Services

This unit provides follow-up investigation to criminal incidents and major cases, and then presents cases for charging to the city or county attorney. The Minnetonka Police Department has investigators specializing in retail and general case investigations and participates in the Southwest Hennepin County Drug Task Force.

In addition, the department has four officers assigned as school liaison officers in the Hopkins, Minnetonka and Intermediate #287 school districts.

The crime prevention analyst coordinates crime prevention services for the community and serves as a liaison to the Neighborhood Block Clubs. Additionally, that position coordinates the intelligence-led policing for the department and also compiles monthly crime statistics, making the information available to the public through the Crime Statistics and Maps page.
