Dundee PD opening new substation in Cabela's

Posted: Updated:
Cabela's is gearing up for its busy season but shoppers will notice more than just new merchandise on the shelves.

"We tend to ramp up August, Sept, because of hunting season," says Christine Stadler who is one of the managers.

The Dundee Police Department is opening the first substation for the village in the large retailer.  It will be a hub for a rotating group of five to six officers within the department.  It will officially open on Friday, July 18. 

When Cabela's is open, the substation is open.  Managers say shoplifting is not a huge problem at their store, but police say it will help other shops within the busy business district.

"It's just an extension of our main office but not quite as extensive as our main office," says Police Chief Dave Uhl.  "We're seeing quite a bit of increase in organized retail crime."

A police car will be stationed in front of the store, and the department logo is going up on the front doors.  Chief Dave Uhl says his officers will use the substation to file paperwork, make follow up calls and interview suspects if needed.  Cabela's is allowing them to use the small office at no cost, the department is supplying a computer and equipment.

"I believe anytime you put a police logo on a door it's going to deter a bit at least," says the manager.  "It's just a wonderful opportunity for all of us involved."

Dundee PD officials and retail leaders say the new station is a sign of continued cooperation between law enforcement and businesses.

"Police should partner with not only citizens but also the business community to help fight crime," says Chief Uhl.
