HIGHLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT
The mission of the Highland Police Department is to work in partnership with the community to protect life and property, solve neighborhood problems, and enhance the quality of life in our City.
Public Safety is a top priority in Highland. Highland’s outstanding public safety record is a testimony to its residents and professionally trained police force. The Highland Police Department is staffed with 20 sworn officers and eight support staff, operating 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
The heart of the police department is the communications center, which provides dispatching services for the police, fire and emergency medical services in the city of Highland. With a state of the art 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) located at the Highland Police Department, residents have access to highly efficient and quicker services.
Highland Police offer numerous programs and services available to the public. A school resource officer is assigned to the Highland School District, who is also the officer assigned to DARE, the anti-drug education program for youth. In addition, the Highland Police Department has four CIT officers, who are trained to deal with individuals who are experiencing an emotional or psychological crisis. The HPD’s community services officer responds to animal complaints, lock-outs, nuisances and other minor calls.
