Safety in the Neighborhoods
Our local government provides us with great safety!
We employ thirteen sworn officers and two civilians. Many of our officers wear many hats within the department. We have officers who not only have the responsibility of day to day police service, but also are dedicated to extra duties, such as K-9, Public Relations Officer, and assisting with an Explorer unit through the Boy Scouts of America.
