Welcome to the Lakes Area Police Department website.  The department services the cities of Chisago City and Lindstrom, Minnesota.  We are a growing department dedicated to our community.  Visit our Department and Staff pages for more information on the individuals who serve the community.

The mission of our department is: 

"To provide a modern, flexible and full service law enforcement agency, which is responsive to community needs." 

This website is intended to be a service to the community by providing information about the Lakes Area Police Department, including a community section with Local News, information about the programs the department supports, up coming events and Alerts that the community should be aware of.

The FAQs (frequently asked questions) section provides answers to some of the more common questions the Department receives.

The site also has Resources for families, individuals and members of law enforcement through numerous links to other helpful and informational sites.  There is a kids page with creative ideas, safety information and fun things to do online.

We invite you to share your thoughts about the information we offer on this website and suggestions for ideas of other types of information you think may be helpful.  Submit your suggestions to the Lakes Area Police Department to Public Comments.
