Letter From Chief
On behalf of the women and men who comprise the Port Orchard Police Department, I want to welcome you to our web page.
I am extremely proud of the individuals that make up this organization. You can count on these people to provide the highest level of quality, professional service that the citizens and visitors of Port Orchard deserve.
Our police officers are an integral part of our community and their presence, whether on patrol or in specialized assignments such as our school resource officer program, is aimed at maintaining high visibility and accessibility. So when you see our officers out and about in the community, remember that they are there for you – enforcing the laws, ensuring public safety and responding to people in need.
I believe effective public safety is a collaborative effort. A police department alone cannot control crime. We have joined with a committed, supportive constituency to make the idea of community policing more than just a concept in Port Orchard.
Our website will introduce you to who we are and what we do. It has been designed to make frequently used information easily accessible. As you browse through our pages you will find a wide variety of information regarding our programs and services, as well as telephone numbers and email addresses to contact all areas of the department.
As you explore this site it is my hope that you will become increasingly aware of the services and information available through the Port Orchard Police Department. New information is added on a regular basis, so check back often.
Chief of Police
