Public education is a critical function of Woodbury Public Safety and has had a measurable effect on the safety and security of our citizens.
Woodbury Public Safety supports both public and private education events, reaching more than 30,000 people annually.
Public Safety events include Coffee with a Cop, Minnesota Night to Unite and Fire Station Open Houses but special community events are also encouraged to strengthen neighborhood spirit and build Public Safety/community partnerships. You may invite police officers, firefighters or emergency medical personnel to attend these events for public education purposes. This request must be made at least two weeks in advance, as these events are staffed by officers who come in on their days off.*
*Please note: Public Safety strongly encourages neighborhoods to schedule events on Minnesota Night to Unite, held annually on the first Tuesday of August. Due to staff availability, there is a higher likelihood that staff will be able to attend events held on this day.
You can fill out a Special Events Request form online. When submitting your event request, please provide us with as much detail as possible, including the type of educational focus you’re looking for, the number of participants you expect and their age group. To ensure these events are educational in nature, we request that events be focused on children second grade or older. For younger children, we recommend visiting one of our many open houses, or other public events. For your event to be considered and for staffing purposes, all events must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the event.
