Welcome to the Liberty Lake Police Department website. The purpose of this website is to present you with a more detailed view of the Liberty Lake Police Department and how we serve our community. The Liberty Lake Police Department is an agency staffed with outstanding men and women serving the public safety and community needs of the citizens of Liberty Lake. As the police chief, it is an honor to work alongside the commissioned officers and support staff of our agency in the most beautiful, family-oriented, and supportive community in the state of Washington. Our expanding agency consists of 23 commissioned personnel, two evidence and records clerks, one chaplain, and one police ambassador. We provide our growing city of more than 13,000 citizens, as well as schools, businesses, and other community resources with police coverage and other public safety services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

All citizens have the right to services of the police. Strong relationships and mutual trust between the police and the community is critical in maintaining public safety and effective policing. Furthermore, the willingness of the community to trust the police depends on whether police actions reflect community values and principles of procedural justice and legitimacy. The mission of the Liberty Lake Police Department is to uphold the law fairly and firmly; to prevent crime; to pursue and bring to justice those who break the law; to keep the peace; and to provide quality police service to the community by promoting a safe environment through police and citizen interaction, with emphasis on fairness, respect, empathy, dignity, and professionalism.

Thank you for your interest in the Liberty Lake Police Department and the services that we provide. Please browse our website to familiarize yourself with our organization and our commitment to the community. I look forward to working with you to keep Liberty Lake a great place to live, work, and play.
