The Webster City Police Department is the largest law enforcement agency in Hamilton County and serves a population of 7,877 people. Currently the police department is made up of 12 sworn officers and a support staff of 10 including a full service communications center. We encourage the residents of Webster City to help us deal with issues occurring in their neighborhoods and to participate in the resolution of their concerns. Several programs are used to accomplish this goal.
To assist in achieving this goal we partner with a variety of service groups as well as organizations such as Hamilton County Crime Stoppers and Power Up Youth!. In addition the police department has a strong relationship with the Webster City Community School District. Officers are in the district’s schools daily interacting with students and staff to break down barriers.
The police department provides several services to the community in addition to what is commonly considered “police work.” Vacation house checks, residential and commercial security patrols, public speaking events and cultural diversity events. The police department currently has an officer who serves as the Cultural Liaison between the police department and the various cultures within Webster City.
To promote safety and security for everyone, the police department plays an active role in SALT (Seniors And Law-enforcement Together.), Hamilton County Crime Stoppers, Hamilton County Preparedness Coalition and the DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program. Every year the police department partners with other public safety entities to hold a Safety Day for school age children to promote fire, medical, and over all safety. These Safety Days have proven to be a hit with the participants and their families!
