About the Police Department

The Coldwater Police Department is a full-service agency, striving to be on the cutting edge of law enforcement and service, providing round-the-clock police protection since 1905. The most valuable asset of our department is our employees who strive to provide the community with quality service in a professional manner. Your safety is our number one concern.

Today, tax dollars are tight and expectations are high as to the services expected from all police agencies to keep their communities safe. To make the most of your tax dollars we are constantly examining the way we deliver services in an effort to stabilize the cost of service to our citizens. We have a positive relationship within the community and with the Coldwater Community Schools and our goal is to continue to build on those relationships.
