Since 1871 the Police Department has aimed to improve the quality of life for all citizens of Woodland by administrating programs which prevent, investigate, solve and ultimately decrease crime. While reducing the crime benefits everyone involved in the community, one chief aim is to maintain a high quality of life for those calling Woodland their home. The Police Department strives to achieve its mission through a dedication to open, honest communication, professionalism, community education, creative problem solving and recognition of the community’s humanistic needs.
Aside from the policing that the department provides there are special services that are offered to both individuals and businesses. Examples of these are, bicycle licensing, online crime reporting and help for individuals in crisis.
