Mission Statement

The Faribault Police Department strives to provide professional and impartial law enforcement services that meet the highest standards of ethics and law.

Chief's Message

Welcome to the Faribault Police Department web page. The Police Department protects human life and property by responding to emergency and non-emergency calls for service, enforces laws and ordinances, investigates crimes, apprehends criminals, provides proactive policing through education and crime prevention, and maintains order.

The men and women that work for the Faribault Police Department are committed to providing a quality service to the citizens of this city by working with residents and businesses to maintain a safe community. Through these partnerships, we urge all citizens to be alert for suspicious or unusual activity and anytime you need police, fire, or medical assistance, call 9-1-1.

As your chief, I will guarantee we will work to make certain that we continue to provide impartial policing services, are responsive to the needs of our residents, respectful and honest with those we serve, act with fiscal responsibility, and remain dedicated to improving services through progressive programs, effective training, and better technology.

Finally, I will ensure transparency and accountability as we operate as public servants. We will seek justice for those that we are entrusted to protect and commit to being tough on crime. To reach the Police Department, you may call us at 507-334-4305.Police Department Outreach QR Code
