La Grande Police Department
The Mission of the La Grande Police Department is to ethically protect the lives, property and quality of life of the La Grande community to the best of our ability, while respecting the constitutional rights of all persons. We will deliver competent and professional service with honor, integrity and fairness while morally seeking truth and justice.
Welcome to the La Grande Police Department website. Whether you are a La Grande citizen or a visitor to our beautiful city, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable experience. I joined the department as Chief in April of 2009 and have been pleased to find a group of very dedicated and talented individuals. The men and women of the La Grande Police Department care greatly for this community and the safety of those who live and visit here. We are personally invested and involved in the community in many ways ranging from coaching youth to serving on non-profit boards. We have enjoyed tremendous support from you, our citizens, and we appreciate it.
We hold ourselves to very high standards and we pride ourselves on maintaining excellent training, professional development and competency. We enjoy support and collaboration with many community partners and share our critical law enforcement mission with our friends, the Union County Sheriff’s Office and Oregon State Police. As part of our jurisdiction, we are the proud providers of law enforcement services to Eastern Oregon University.
I am a strong believer in providing quality and ethical service to the community and I can assure you that philosophy is shared throughout our department. We consider it a privilege that you have entrusted us with the care of this community and we do not take that responsibility lightly.
