Welcome Statement from the Chief of Police

The City of Oakwood Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency that takes pride in community policing. We tell our new officers that they will not be a badge number in Oakwood. Everyone will know your name.

Our goal is to deliver high-quality and efficient service by working in cooperation with city government, residents and businesses. The philosophy of our department is straightforward: Serve our citizens.

Some agencies around the country are returning to the practice of community policing. We never left it. We recognize the unique responsibility of policing and know that our effectiveness is enhanced through close relationships with our citizens.

Our officers have chosen this profession based on their strong ethics and a desire to make a positive difference.

Along with their support staff, Oakwood police officers work tirelessly to set high standards for police services, and we strive to maintain the highest levels of integrity and professionalism in our duties. We are proud of our department and the service we provide to the community.

In the police section of this website, you will find a history of the department, and information on command staff, operations divisions, and outstanding warrants in the Oakwood jurisdiction.

Please take some time to explore our web pages to learn more about the department. I welcome your feedback on the information here and your interactions with our staff.
