Public Safety

Mission Statement

Cottage Grove Public Safety collectively serves our community compassionately providing protection of life and property. We do this with honor, integrity, pride and professionalism.


Call 911 anytime you need direct access to law enforcement, fire, or emergency medical services. 911 is the best number to use to process accurate, timely responses for both emergency and non-emergency situations.

  • An alternate 10-digit emergency number is 651-439-9381; these lines are answered by the same 911 communications center staff. Your call will be put on hold if other emergencies are occurring. Be patient.
  • The number for the main office at the Cottage Grove Public Safety Department is 651-458-2850; this line is for general questions or to reach a specific individual.
  • Email is not monitored 24/7. Messages are checked during regular business hours. Please email the Police Department for general questions.
