Installing a car seat for an infant or toddler can be a daunting task for new and experienced parents. If you would like help installing a car seat for the first time or just want to make sure that the current one is installed properly, please contact the Belle Plaine Police Department to schedule an inspection.
Do you have a surveillance camera at your residence or business? If so, The Belle Plaine Police Department would like to partner with you to help 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, The Belle Plaine Police Department 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 the Belle Plaine Police Department with access to security camera systems that are privately owned by participants. Questions? Contact our office at 952-873-4307.
