Community Outreach Division
The Sheriff's Office deputies and personnel often interact with residents when they are in need of immediate help or law enforcement services. While emergency response is essential, we recognize the value of community collaboration. Our deputies and personnel build trusting partnerships with residents—and together we develop solutions to improve public safety.
This is known as “community policing” and it is a key component in the Task Force on 21st Century Policing Report—which is a set of recommendations for law enforcement to build community trust. The Community Outreach Division operates multiple community policing programs, including the Community Engagement Team and the Sheriff's Youth Program.
To request the Community Outreach team at your event, contact Deputy Joel Svenby at 612-348-2420 or Joel.Svenby@hennepin.us.
