City of Durand Bike Licensing
The Durand Police Department offers FREE bike licenses to the citizens of Durand. Any
person wishing to license their bicycle, needs to come to the police department in person,
to fill out the appropriate forms so the license can be properly tracked. Information
needed for proper licensing is the make/model of the bike, the bike description, and bike
serial number if possible.
Bicycle Safety Program
Each year bicycle safety programs are held all throughout Pepin County in a
partnership of law enforcement services from the Pepin Police Department,
Durand Police Department, Pepin County Sheriff’s Department and the Durand
Area Optimist Club. We will keep you updated on the dates for 2006. If you
should have any other questions, contact Deputy Kevin Glander with the Pepin
County Sheriff’s Department at (715) 672-5944.
Child Identification Program
Every year over 800,000 children go missing, which breaks down to
approximately one child every 40 seconds. It is every parent’s fear to have to
face their child going missing, but it is the hope of our department that you are
prepared for that very possibility.
The Durand Police Department has available FREE “Child ID Kits” for the use of
parents and guardians. The kits provide vital information on the child from
fingerprints, physical description, medical and dental information and a D.N.A.
sample. Anyone wishing to pick up a kit can stop by the police department and
have one given to them. It is the parent or guardians responsibility to maintain
and provide the information in the kit. The parent then should keep the kit in a
safe or other protective place.
We would like to thank Pierce-Pepin Electric for their donation of the kits, as well
as the American Football Coaches Association in partnership of the FBI. These
kits are available at the police department, so come pick one up today!
Due to insurance purposes and the ever changing construction of vehicles, it is
the policy of the City of Durand to NOT provide car lockouts, unless it involves a
child or animal locked in the vehicle, or another type of emergency. However, the
Pepin County Sheriff’s Department does provide this service for free if a deputy
is available and in the area.
All agencies in Pepin County (Durand PD, Pepin PD, and Pepin County SO)
have gun locks available for free to the public. The gun locks were provided
through a grant, and are provided to the general public to better secure your
weapons at home, and away.
These gun locks come with a keyed lock, which will help you keep your weapons
away from children and others who should not handle firearms. These are only
available at the police departments, and you must come in person to pick them

the comfort of knowing that our homes are safe being left alone. We at the police
department would love to add to your sense of security by conducting home
