A Message from Chief Knight

School Safety
As you are no doubt aware, on Tuesday, January 8th and Wednesday, January 9th, 2013, a threat was directed toward students and staff, at the Chaska High School. The safety plan that the school district and police department have developed to secure our schools was put in place. It should be known that we have partnered on conducting this type of planning and training long before it was mandated by law.

All worked according to our plans, on both days. Rest assured that while we were making sure all were safe, we were also working on tracking down the person who issued the threats. An arrest was made and the offender was in custody within 36 hours. This investigative piece was no small task, and in the coming weeks more information about this will become public. What is important for our community to know is: 1. 2. 3. Our planning and training worked. The offender acted alone and is in custody. The offender did not have the means to carry out his threats.

Gun Violence Reduction

Today, Wednesday, January 16th, Chief Scott Knight joined President Obama and Vice President Biden, at the White House, for the announcement of the President's plan to reduce gun violence in America. "The President's plan is solid, preserves second amendment rights, and will go a long way to prevent dangerous people from getting guns", said Knight.

CITIZEN ACADEMY IS BACK Next session starting January 29th ~Limited Openings~
Citizen Academy is a seven-session program, in which people learn about police work in Chaska by experiencing police work. Lectures and actual hands-on experiences are combined for a unique insight into the police department. The classes are held on Tuesday nights from 6 to 8 PM and are FREE! The police department is providing an academy to increase partnerships with those in our community and create opportunities to receive feedback from participants to improve our delivery of services. Often there is little opportunity for both citizens and officers to share views and ideas. If you are interested in participating in the academy please contact Officer Janke at 952-448-4200 or e-mail her at to have an application sent to you.
