The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department provides law enforcement services to our community. Little Canada contracts for this service along with Arden Hills, Gem Lake, North Oaks, Shoreview, Vadnais Heights, and White Bear Township.

Patrol Services responds to calls for service 24 hours a day, such as medicals, alarms, vehicle crashes, motorist assists, and domestic disputes as well as reports of property offenses and fraud. This unit assists citizens and other law enforcement agencies.

While engaging in community policing practices, Patrol Services actively patrol each contract city to prevent and deter crime, as well as enforce city and county ordinances, and state and federal laws. Initial reports of felony-level offenses are taken by Patrol Services and then forwarded to the Criminal Investigations Unit further investigations.
