As part of its community policing, education and outreach approach, the Shakopee Police Department actively seeks continued engagement and interaction with people and businesses who have been victimized by crime.  Through early intervention and victim services, the department provides information and resources which helps establish trust with victims to restore hope for healing and recovering from the impacts of crime.

The crime victim and community services coordinator is available to crime victims to answer questions about their case, educate them about their rights, outline the criminal justice system and provide resources so they can understand more, suffer less and recovery more completely. On behalf of the police department, the coordinator also partners with other organizations, groups and individuals to be an active contributor to the Shakopee community.
