Congressman Tom Emmer was in St. Cloud this week meeting with St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson, St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis, and representative Tama Theis to get an update on the COP House in St. Cloud. Emmer says the COP House continues to be a success offering community engagement with police and community members.
I was joined today on WJON by 6th District Congressman Tom Emmer. He authored the bill helping create the COP House in St. Cloud. COP stands for Community Outpost and is a home in a neighborhood that has had issues with crime activity. The home is meant for police to increase visibility and community involvement in trouble neighborhoods with the expectation to reduce crime.
