A law passed in the 2005 legislative session (Laws 2005, chapter 135) generally gives to motorized foot scooters the same rights and responsibilities as bicycles on streets and highways.
On April 3, Fridley Police learned that Level 3 Predatory Offender Irvin Lee Bordeaux will not be living in Fridley. Bordeaux, who had originally registered to live in the City of Fridley upon his release from custody April 6, has registered as "homeless" in Minneapolis. He will be required to report weekly to Minneapolis Police.
This notification is meant to provide information and alleviate fear, not create it. The most important factor to consider is that people who commit predatory crimes have always lived in our communities. The difference is that since the 1990's, Minnesota statutes allow local police departments to inform citizens of certain offender's general whereabouts.
There are approximately 55 registered predatory offenders living in the City of Fridley. The Fridley Police Department regularly conducts compliance checks on these offenders. This enforcement ensures that offenders living within our borders are in compliance. Investigations are conducted on those offenders found to be non-compliant as defined by Minnesota statute, with criminal prosecution pursued through the Anoka County Attorney's office.
The predatory offender is required by law to register with local authorities and to keep authorities apprised of any subsequent changes in residence.
In Spring 2009, the Fridley Police Department contracted with The State of Minnesota Surplus Services to dispose of vehicles that have been forfeited to the Police Department.
Minnesota Surplus Services holds on-line auctions continuously as vehicles are received from the City. For more information or to view vehicles for sale, please visit Minnesota Surplus Services.
If you have any questions please contact the Fridley Police Detective Lieutenant.
Recognizing the importance of maintaining a good working relationship with its citizens, as well as educating its youth, the Fridley Police Department developed a School Resource Officer Program, a nationally accepted plan to place a law enforcement officer within schools.
The Police Department is located in the lower level of the Fridley Municipal Center at 6431 University Avenue NE in Fridley, Minnesota. Redesigned in 1989, the facility has offices, holding cells, a firing range, heated garages for squads and equipment, locker rooms and an emergency operations center.
The department provides around the clock police service with 40 sworn peace officers and 15 full- or part-time civilian staff.

The Field Operations division consists of the uniformed patrol officers and non-sworn community service officers. The Technical Services division includes Information Services, Special Projects and Investigation.
