Welcome to the website for the Washington, Iowa Police Department. Serving with pride, the members of our department are committed to providing professional and compassionate service to the residents and visitors of Washington.
The management philosophy of teamwork, accountability and communication drives our department as we work in partnership with our citizens and community organizations to maintain and enhance our quality of life in Washington.
I am extremely proud to serve as Chief of Police and work side by side with the outstanding members of this department in serving our community. Please take some time to browse through our site and we encourage you to participate with us in various events throughout the year.
Please don’t hesitate to take a moment to say hello to the members of the department when you see us out and about. We enjoy opportunities to talk about our work and may even have a Junior Police Officer sticker to share with those future WPD officers.
