The primary goal of the Avon Police Department is to provide for the security of persons and property within the community. This is accomplished through providing police services dedicated to the protection of life and property, apprehension of offenders, service to its citizens, and providing services that are unbiased, fair, respectful, and judicious. In respect of the dignity of all individuals and through public knowledge and confidence, professional and capable assistance is available in times of emergency.

The Avon Police Department currently has a staff of 3 full-time officers, 5 part-time officers, and one full-time administrative support/records staff. The Avon Police Department also currently employs non-sworn Beach Patrol Officers, as well as non-sworn volunteer Police Reserve Officers.
The Avon Police Department is currently not a 24-hour department. When you call the non-emergency phone number and it is not immediately answered, your call will roll over to the Stearns County Sheriff's Office Dispatchers. The Stearns County Sheriff's Office is the primary public safety answering point for 911 and for roll-over calls of the Avon Police Department. Office hours vary for support/records staff.
You may file a non-emergency complaint, comment, or concern via e-mail at avonpolice@cityofavonmn.com and it will be handled accordingly and contact will be made with you. Include a phone number and address where you can be contacted so that a proper investigation can take place.
