Emergency Management

Saint Paul Police Department works in collaboration with Emergency Management on an as needed basis. The mission of Emergency Management is to build, sustain and improve our community’s capability to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to and recover from threatened or actual disasters, whether natural or man-made and acts of terrorism.  We accomplish this by working with our partner agencies and organizations.  This mission ensures that Saint Paul remains the "Most Livable City in America."
