We strive to deliver professional police services. When our employees shine, we like to recognize those employees. We would appreciate it if you would let us know when our employee has done a great job. Conversely, we may not always explain our actions clearly or there may be room for improvement. It is our desire to address concerns in order to resolve misunderstandings or correct mistakes as soon as possible. There is a shift commander on-duty 24 hrs a day. Shift commanders generally try to check their voice mail for messages every two hours if they are out of the office. The other administrative staff typically work Mon - Fri, 8 am - 4:30 pm but may receive voice and emails. If you wish to comment on our employee's service, please contact a member of management as follows:
