A message from the Chief:
"It is with great pride that I serve the citizens of Wenatchee and employees of the Wenatchee Police Department as your Chief of Police. We are all very proud of the community we live in, and strive to maintain a safe environment for our citizens to work, play and raise families.
I firmly believe that building a strong working relationship with our community is paramount in developing trust and integration of the Police Department into our community. We accomplish this by extensive community involvement in a wide array of organizations and taking an active role in developing community-based partnerships and solving problems together. We know that we can be much more effective working together as a team with our community when dealing with crime and other safety-related concerns.
We are most fortunate to have such quality, educated and dedicated personnel that take a high degree of pride in providing the best service possible to our customers.
Our community is fortunate to enjoy the outstanding partnerships we have in criminal justice and public safety services. This is a credit to our elected officials and organizational leaders throughout the entire Wenatchee Valley. Some examples include the RiverCom 911 Emergency Call Center, Chelan County Regional Justice Center, Domestic Violence Rape Crisis Center, Department of Corrections, Columbia River Drug Task Force, the Regional Support Network which coordinates mental health services, Community Traffic Safety Task Force, the Trauma Intervention Program and many other state and local organizations.
The Police Department is structured to provide a wide range of specialized law enforcement services and volunteer opportunities. The reserve officers and Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) provide many hours of valuable service.
I encourage our customers to use this website to clearly understand what police services are available and how to access them. I invite our citizens to use this system as a means to ask questions or provide suggestions that may help us improve the services we are currently providing."
