Every officer on the Auburn police force has been assigned to one of five sections of the city. In addition to meeting the daily demands throughout the city, each officer spends as much time as possible in his or her assigned area, interacting with residents and becoming familiar with names, faces, vehicles, pets and other daily activities. This dedicated focus by officers on a particular section of the community enhances our ability to protect and preserve the community. Even more, it builds relationships as officers interact regularly with residents and business owners who share the goal of maintaining a safe and secure community.
We offer home checks free of charge for citizens who are away from their homes for extended periods of time, such as vacations, part-time residency in other states or unforeseen circumstances that require you to be away. Officers check your house once a week in an effort to deter break-ins.
If you meet these requirements and wish to have your home checked, contact the Auburn Police Department at 260.920.3200 or complete the home check form.
Geared toward ages 16-20, the Pathfinder Program is a mentoring program for young adults residing in DeKalb County, including disadvantaged and at-risk youth. In addition to providing instruction and information on the field of law enforcement, Pathfinder emphasizes the importance of moral and ethical behavior, community involvement and personal responsibility—all with the overarching goal of equipping young adults with the life skills they need to successfully transition from high school into adulthood.
Participants work hand-in-hand with members of the Auburn Police Department, as well as other public servants, including local fire personnel, emergency medical technicians, and other members of related law enforcement agencies.
Training the next generation of police officers is critical to the long-term vitality of our city. We have a strong Police Reserve program for those interested in a career in law enforcement.
