As "stakeholders" we are all responsible for the enforcement of law and attention to the problems that challenge every one of us. We must work together in partnership to successfully deal with these challenges and make Dodge City safe and secure.


This website provides you with a variety of information concerning the police department, community, award winning programs, professional and dedicated department personnel, and career opportunities.
