Rosemount Police Department

Our department serves the city of Rosemount, a southern Twin Cities suburb of just under 25,000 people in Dakota County. We were the first agency in Minnesota to join the Pink Patch Project in 2017. In the past two years (and with the help of newly joined Hastings Police Department in 2018) we have raised approximately $10,000 for American Cancer Society. We annually participate in their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. We sell patches and challenge coins to raise funds. It is a voluntary initiative for our officers with nearly 100% participation.  The Dakota County Sheriff's Office, Hastings Police Department and Farmington Police Department have joined us in our Pink Patch Project campaign.
