Police Chief's Welcome


Russell Kerbow - Chief of Police

I want to welcome everyone to our website. It's my desire that this website be a useful place for visitors desiring information on the various programs and services that our police department provides. The most recent feature of the city's website is the ability to report crimes on-line. In addition to criminal matters, residents may request their home be placed on the vacation watch list from the comfort of their computer terminal. You will also find basic crime prevention information along with a list of 'how tos' on matters ranging from how to obtain a police report to how to become a police officer. It is our objective that this site be user friendly and if you have a suggestion or idea that helps with this, please feel free to e-mail me your suggestion at Enjoy the site and welcome!
