Highland Police Department

On behalf of the members of Highland Police Department, I welcome you to our portion of the City of Highland website.  I would like to take this opportunity to present some information to you about the Highland Police Department.

The Highland Police Department just recently moved to their new location at 12990 Troxler Avenue. 

The Highland Police Department currently has twenty sworn officers and nine civilian personnel.   The heart of the police department is the Communications Center.  The communications center is staffed 24 hours a day.  It provides dispatching services for the police, fire and emergency medical services in the City of Highland.  It also provides dispatching services for fire and emergency medical services in the Highland Pierron Fire District and Grantfork Fire District.  EMS dispatching services are also provided to the St. Rose Fire District and the St. Jacob Fire District. Communications is equipped with an Enhanced 9-1-1 Emergency Telephone System, TDD capabilities, and Severe Weather Alert Siren System. 

The patrol division is made up of fifteen patrol officers and four sergeants.  The patrol division has a proactive approach to crime prevention and making our citizens feel secure and comfortable.

The department has two detectives assigned to investigations that reports to the Investigations Sergeant.  The department also has a School Resource Officer assigned to the Highland Community School District.

I close by thanking you for the time you have spent reviewing this information.  If you have any other questions please feel free to contact my staff or me.
