Rogers residents will see a new Police Station being remodeled and opened for operation during 2014. In 2013, the City purchased an existing industrial property/building on Industrial Court in Rogers with plans to renovate the building to become the new home of the Rogers Police Department. The City’s current Police Station has been identified as needing replacement for many years and is the most deficient departmental building owned by the City in terms size, condition and functionality. Numerous building issues make the current facility untenable for future use as a Police Station.
Buying an existing building as opposed to building a new footprint will allow the City to save several million dollars, with the range depending upon the alternatives being compared (adding on to the Fire Station or a new building altogether, etc.). The total estimated cost of the project – including the initial purchase of the building, renovation and technology/equipment costs – is approximately $3.4-$3.5 million. The interior remodel of the future Police Station is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2014 and will accommodate the expected growth of the City over the next 20-30 years.
Prior to the annexation of Hassan, City Code essentially did not allow hunting anywhere in the City. With Hassan having more rural and undeveloped areas, it became apparent that changes to the ordinance needed to occur. The Planning Commission and City Council approved an ordinance that allows hunting to occur in the city-when certain circumstances are met. The ordinance in general states that:
Please review the Hunting Ordinance and zoning map before submitting a Hunting Permit. Fill out and return the Hunting Permit to the Rogers Police Department.

The Rogers Police Department has adopted the following statements of its values:
Hennepin County adopted a countywide curfew ordinance in 1994 in response to a significant increase in juvenile crime and victimization. Many juvenile crimes occur during curfew hours. The county-wide curfew ordinance standardizes curfew regulation throughout Hennepin County. Curfews apply to anyone under age 18, at any public place, including streets, common areas of schools, hospitals, apartment houses, office buildings, transport facilities and shops. Of course, parents always can set tighter curfews and regulations for their children.
Curfew hours are staggered, depending on age and day of the week:
Juveniles under age 12, curfew times are:
Juveniles between the ages of 12 and 14:
