Do you have a surveillance camera at your residence or business? If so, Savage Police would like to partner with you to keep your neighborhood safe. Security cameras can be a great tool when solving crimes. But police are not always aware who has surveillance cameras and potentially vital information to help solve a crime.
With SafeCam, Savage Police are asking residents and businesses to voluntarily register their private video surveillance systems with the department and allow officers to contact them should a crime occur in or near where the camera is installed. The SafeCam program is 100% voluntary and does NOT provide Savage PD with access to security camera systems that are privately owned by participants. Questions? Contact the Crime Prevention Specialist at 952-882-2604.
The Savage Police Department offers a safe exchange zone, called Safe Spot, where residents can exchange items that they have purchased/sold online. This allows people to have a public location to make legal transactions. The Safe Spot is located at the Savage Police Department, 6000 McColl Drive, near the short term parking. It is identified with a Safe Spot sign and is under camera surveillance 24 hours a day, seven days a week. People do not need to ask for permission to use the area.
Safe Spot can be used for various transactions, including child custody exchanges, online transactions, and retrieving property from family members or acquaintances
Other safety tips:
- Tell a friend or family member where you are going and when you plan to be back.
- If possible, have someone go with you
- Take your cell phone with you and make sure it's on
- Always trust your instincts
