LOCKOUTS In the event that you lock your keys in the car, as a courtesy to the residents and visitors of this wonderful City we will respond to assist you. We will attempt to respond as quickly as possible, depending on the volume of calls, and try to gain entry into your vehicle. You can contact us at: 260.357.5151

BUSINESS CHECKS Our department appreciates and supports our local businesses. With this in mind, our department does nightly business checks of businesses in our town. We drive through parking lots with our searchlights on looking for anything suspicious or out of place. This is one of the steps we take to be a proactive police department instead of a reactive one.
