Letter from Cottage Grove Public Safety Director

Dear Hidden Valley Resident,

Yesterday was a difficult day for our entire community and we realize it was extremely difficult for you as well. I want to acknowledge and thank you for your patience as investigators worked to piece together a number of incidents that occurred in your neighborhood. I’d also like to apologize to those of you who could not gain access to your homes as detectives investigated throughout the afternoon and evening hours. By nature, these investigations must be both comprehensive and thorough. We, as a department, realize how the investigation impacted and inconvenienced you and your families following a traumatic morning. Thank you again for your patience and understanding, the CGPD truly appreciates it. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at 651-458-2850 if you have any questions or concerns.


Chief Pete Koerner Cottage Grove Public Safety Director
