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.

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.
