A Message from the Chief

On behalf of the men and women of the North Branch Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our website.  Our staff includes myself, a sergeant, an investigator, two clerical staff, a school resource officer, and 6 patrol officers.

The City of North Branch has approximately 11,000 people and is located 45 miles north of Minneapolis and St Paul.  Our Police Department is the primary law enforcement authority within the 36 square miles of North Branch.  Our city borders are from the Isanti County line, east to Keystone Ave and from 360th St (just north of Co Rd 17) up to 420th St (Harris).

Just like our Police Department, our web pages are designed with our citizens interest in mind.  First, we have an email address for our entire department.  Next, you have the ability to report crimes, suspicious activity or other information ONLINE on our Anonymous Tips page.  If you would like to ask me a question, the Chief's Corner provides you the opportunity to ask me questions all from the comfort of your home.

Again, Welcome and enjoy!
