The Police Advisory Commission was formed to increase awareness of Police Department capabilities and services, provide an opportunity for citizen involvement and input in police services, and encourage positive interactions between the Police Department and the community. The work of the commission changes as the needs of the community change. 

Park Flyers Track & Field is based in St. Louis Park, MN and was introduced to the metro area in 2009. We have since established a tradition of excellence in providing athletes high quality coaching and instruction in a fun, all-inclusive environment as well as encouraging our team to achieve personal and group goals. Park Flyers Track & Field is one of the leading track and field programs in Minnesota and innovating the way the sport of track and field is experienced in our area.

Park Flyers strives to promote education, social development, responsibility, and citizenship through the sports of track and field, cross-country and strength training. 



In an ongoing effort to keep people safe and improve relationships between officers and the public, the St. Louis Park Police Department has a wide variety of community outreach activities and programs. For the 2019 SLP 5K the SLP PD has chosen to raise money for Perspectives. Their goal is to raise $2500 that will go towards fully furnishing an apartment for a single mother.
