Two Ways to Keep Crime in Check

The Waite Park Community Council is offering Waite Park residents two ways to help keep the neighborhood safe this summer. With National Night Out coming up, the Waite Park Community Council is offering $100 grants to blocks and block clubs for events throughout the area. We hope that all neighbors and residents will participate in their local National Night Out events, have fun and get to know each other.

The second offering is our security rebate program. All Waite Park homeowners are eligible to receive a $50 rebate on any security item purchased after January 1, 2009. Some eligible improvements include:

  • Exterior security/motion lighting including any necessary wiring and electrical work
  • Exterior steel security doors, including garage access doors
  • Deadbolt locks on exterior doors, including garage access doors
  • Smoke detectors and/or carbon monoxide (CO) detectors
  • Window or sliding door security locks or security restraints
  • Security bars on garage windows or on windows not facing the street
  • Initial installation of a home security system/service, but not monthly monitoring fees.
NOT Eligible:
  • Storm or combination doors not of the all-steel "security" type, even if lockable.
  • Tools
  • Rental charges
  • Personal installation time or "sweat equity"
  • Security system monthly monitoring or service fees
  • Batteries or other consumables
Instructions and forms for these program can be found through these links. All forms and original receipts should be submitted to The Waite Park Community Council, 1810 34th Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN 55418. We hope that you have a fun and safe summer!
