UPDATE: Statement from CenterPoint Energy 

Morning Nov. 12, 2019

Last night, CenterPoint Energy experienced an interruption in gas pressure on our pipeline system in Shakopee. As a result, gas service was shut off to about 600 residential and business customers in the Shakopee downtown business district and some areas immediately to the north and south of downtown.

CenterPoint Energy crews worked overnight to identify and correct the problem. Since early this morning, technicians have been going to the affected homes and businesses to ensure that gas service is safely restored. These technicians are clearly identified as being with CenterPoint Energy. If the customer is not available, the technician will return several times and ultimately leave contact information for the customer to call to get service restored.

The goal is to have all service restored today. CenterPoint Energy apologizes for this inconvenience to our customers.

In the department’s effort to make Shakopee a safe and fun place to live and work, the department constantly strives to enhance its relationship with the community. To strengthen its partnership with the community, the department’s Citizens Academy provides participants the ability (through practical application) to gain perspective on the many challenges faced by law enforcement officers. 

The six-week program is designed to provide residents insight on the inner working of the Shakopee Police Department. Participants will be exposed to several facets of the police department and participate in several of the same training programs through which Shakopee police officers experience.

Advanced Citizens Academy

Due to the success of the Shakopee Police Department Citizens Police Academy, the department introduced an Advanced Citizens Police Academy in October 2019. The advanced academy is only open to graduates of our annual Citizens Police Academy program.
