About Our Department

Welcome to the Orono Police Department’s official website. 

The Orono Police Department (OPD) is proud to serve the communities of Spring Park, Minnetonka Beach, Mound and Orono. The police department covers approximately 28 square miles of land and 20,000 citizens. 

The Orono Police Department prides itself on making the communities feel safe through enforcement and by building strong lasting relationships with citizens and businesses.


The members of the Orono Police Department are committed to providing the highest quality policing through fairness, service and pride. To foster this ideal, we promise to work in partnership with the communities we serve.


The Orono Police Department has teamed up with other local emergency services to make our communities HEARTSafe.

HEARTSafe Communities is a program designed to promote survival from sudden out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. It is a general concept focused upon strengthening the “chain of survival” as described by the American Heart Association. The program recognizes and stimulates efforts by individual communities to improve their system for preventing sudden cardiac arrest from becoming irreversible death. Learn more about HEARTSafe.
