Police Department

The Police Department works to provide effective, efficient, and ethical police services through the management of allocated human and physical resources.

Police Administration

Police Administration is divided into 2 bureaus: Community Services and Training.
  • Community Services Bureau: The Division's Community Services Bureau provides public education in the areas of crime prevention, personal safety, and child protection.
  • Training Bureau: Through a variety of training and educational mediums, the Training Bureau identifies training needs and provides officers with the necessary equipment to effectively perform their jobs.
The Administrative Captain and the Police Administration staff prepare the annual budget, monitor and process all expenditures, oversee audits and are responsible for the department's inventory. This division also administers personnel matters and processes the department's payroll.
