Night to Unite

Usually every year, on the first Tuesday of August, communities throughout the State of Minnesota get together to give crime a going away party.

Night to Unite is designed to:

  1. Get to know one another in your neighborhood;
  2. Build neighborhood involvement by bringing police and communities together; and

So come join us, meet your neighbors, and help us give crime a going away party!




Toward Zero Deaths

The Toward Zero Deaths approach is based on the belief that even one traffic-related death on our roads is unacceptable. This “zero deaths” idea was first adopted in Sweden in 1997 as "Vision Zero" and since then has evolved to several state DOTs, including Minnesota, that have identified zero deaths as a core objective in their Strategic Highway Safety Plans.

TZD uses a data-driven, interdisciplinary approach that targets areas for improvement and employs proven countermeasures, integrating application of education, enforcement, engineering, and emergency medical and trauma services (the “4Es”). A combination of strategies from different focus areas is often most effective for solving a particular problem.

The Osseo Police Department participates in the enforcement area of TZD, which emphasizes primarily on speed, distracted driving and seatbelt enforcement. The enforcement is paid for by a grant through TZD. The Brookllyn Park Police Department is the primary grantee and the Brooklyn Center, Champlin, Osseo Police Departments and the Hennepin County Sheriffs Office are partners. Officer Starry is the TZD Coordinator for the Osseo Police Department.

Toys for Tots

Every Christmas, the Osseo Police Department partners with local businesses to raise toys for the Toys for Tots - Twin Cities toy drive. We realize that Christmas is not always a fun and exciting time for everyone and that some children go without on Christmas Morning. By raising toys for infants, children and teens, we hope to bring a little light to their lives, as no child should go without on Christmas.
