The Support Division provides critical behind the scenes support to the Police Administration, Community Engagement and Operations Divisions. Core functions include Accounting, Building Maintenance, Department Training, Fleet Maintenance, Information Desk Services, Professional Standards, Property & Evidence Services and Records & Reports Services.
The Support Division consists of 1 Commander, 1 Lieutenant, 2 Sergeants, 1 Building Maintenance Supervisor and 4 Non Sworn Supervisors that oversee the personnel that provide these vital department services.
The St. Cloud Police Department is currently researching and developing a Body Worn Camera (BWC) Program and is seeking public feedback.
BWC's are becoming an important piece of equipment for law enforcement across the state and country. These BWC's and the policies directing their use, directly support the mission of the St. Cloud Police Department. The implementation of BWC's demonstrate a continued commitment to providing highly effective and transparent public safety services.
The proposed policy was developed in accordance with the requirements in Minnesota Statutes 13.825 and 626.8473. The St. Cloud Police Department is committed to these guidelines and the proposed BWC policy reflects that commitment. Minnesota Statute 13.825 provide guidelines to law enforcement agencies for BWC's, sharing data among agencies, and biennial audits. Minnesota Statute 626.8743 requires a written policy and requires the law enforcement agency to provide an opportunity for public comment prior to the purchase or implementation of the BWC program.
The St. Cloud Police Department knows how important community feedback is for the program to be successful and is currently seeking public feedback electronically or by mail.
There will be an opportunity for public comment at the St. Cloud City Council Meeting on December 21, 2020 at 6pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall:
City Hall Council Chambers

St. Cloud, MN 56301
