Police Protection

The City of Ham Lake contracts with the Anoka County Sheriff’s Department to provide police protection for its residents and businesses.

Currently, Deputies are assigned to the City for a total of 36 hours for each day.  Basically, that is three deputies, each working a twelve hour shift assigned specifically to our city.

Good communication between the City and Anoka County Sheriff’s Office is maintained in numerous ways.  A representative of the Sheriff’s office attends a monthly City Council meeting to report on activity within the City during the past month, a representative from the Sheriff’s office attends a monthly staff meeting and the Law Enforcement Committee, which includes the City Administrator,  Mayor Van Kirk and Councilmember Johnson meets monthly with the Sheriff’s Office.

The City has adopted Curfews for Juveniles, as a part of its City Code.
