Community Involvement

Our mission, community policing, can only be accomplished if we are empowered by our citizens through effective communications and community involvement. The department seeks input from our community and requests your assistance so we can serve you in an efficient and professional manner. We welcome your suggestions, constructive criticism, and compliments to help us better serve you.  Please reach out to us at (406) 863-2420.
