City of DeWitt Police Department:

The City of DeWitt operates a 24-hour Department with a staff of six full-time sworn officers which include a Chief, a Lieutenant and six part-time officers and an Administrative Assistant.

Our Department is proud of being a community-oriented agency, still performing many of the services long since abandoned by larger, busier departments. Like many small communities near metropolitan hubs, the DeWitt Police Department's first line of defense against the encroachment of criminal activity is an ongoing and aggressive program of preventive patrol, 24 hours a day. 

The Department takes pride in the fact that officers are supplied and trained with the finest vehicles and equipment made, and we expect that contact between a Police Officer and a resident will be professional and pleasant.
