News and Alerts

The Knights of Columbus, Osseo Police Department and several other surrounding law enfrocement agencies have formed a partnership to distribute new winter coats this winter, to children who need them.

The coats are donated by the Knights of Columbus to the police departments, who distribute the coats to children who need them in their communities. This gives the officers the opportunity to interact with the community in a different, positive way, which is good for both the departments and the children they are helping.

If you know of a family with children who would benefit from this program, please call the Osseo Police Department at (763) 424-5444 and we can arrange getting those coats to that family.

Lets make sure every child is warm this winter!
