Message from the Department

On behalf of the men and women of the Dexter Police Department, we would like to welcome you to our web site, and take this opportunity to tell you about our department. The Dexter Police Department embraces the philosophy of policing by encompassing two distinct strategies; aggressive no-nonsense street policing designed to impact low-level crime; and community partnerships with businesses, neighborhoods, schools and churches.
The Dexter Police Department is involved in many partnerships within our community ranging from school programs to community watch programs. These programs not only provide a mechanism for keeping our community informed and safe, but also permits us to work with our community in problem solving and community service.
We have renewed our challenge to address crime problems within our community with an attitude of professionalism, commitment, and a sincere spirit of cooperation. I am very proud of the members of the Dexter Police Department and those within our community who have assisted and supported us.

We hope the information you find in our web site is helpful and interesting, and if the Dexter Police Department can ever be of service to you, please contact us.

Thank you,

Officers and Staff of the Dexter Police Department
