The Grand Rapids Police Department provides services to our residents 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Our police officers will continue to do so during the Coronavirus Pandemic. In an effort to reduce the transmission of the virus, the City Hall and Police Station are temporarily closed. Our non-emergency telephone number is 218-326-3464. After hours and weekends this telephone will be answered by the Itasca County Sheriff’s Dispatcher who has radio contact with Grand Rapids Police Officers. A police officer will return your telephone call. For less pressing matters, our e-mail address is email@example.com. As always, for emergencies, dial 9-1-1.
