Narcotics Resource Officers and Drug Interdiction:


The Fairmont Police Department works very hard to keep illegal drugs off our streets. Fairmont Police Officers work in conjunction with the Martin County Sheriff's Department, The Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force, The Minnesota State Patrol, and surrounding law enforcement agencies. Our goal is to not only arrest and prosecute drug offenders, but also help people in our community from being harmed by the troubles illegal drugs can bring.

The Fairmont Police Officers use a number of different tactics for fighting illegal drugs. We currently have a K-9 unit that is certified in the detection of drugs and apprehending offenders. We also make use of confidential informants who give police information about drug users and dealers. However, the majority of drug arrests stem from "routine" traffic stops. A small amount of drugs found in a vehicle can lead to a search warrant which can produce larger amounts of drugs taken off the streets of our community.

The Fairmont Police Department offers up to $1000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of people involved in illegal drugs. Anyone with information concerning illegal drugs in our community may call our Narcotics Resource Officers Chad Sanow or James Tietje at the Fairmont Police Department (507) 238-4481.

Working together with the citizens of Fairmont we can greatly reduce the amount of illegal

drugs in our community. Thank you for your help.
