The CHPD has a continuing relationship with the Adult Education Center, dating back to 2012. We have had a very steady attendance at classes throughout the years. Officers lead classes about the police department and policing in Minnesota.
On June 27, 2016, the department started at Multi-Cultural Advisory Committee, known as the MAC. This committee is made up of dedicated volunteers who took time out of their lives in an effort to make our community the very best it can be. This committee will meet monthly discuss what's happening in our community and to share ideas that will have positive outcomes, affecting our residents and those who live, learn, worship, work, or visit Columbia Heights. The MAC will have direct contributions to our Community Policing efforts and other outreach opportunities in our community. The MAC will also use synergy, acceptance, and communication to further the positive relationship our Police Department has with our community. The best way to learn about one another is to listen to each other.
