Police Department

Every day, our police officers work diligently to protect the City of Auburn. After all, as members of this community, we desire the same thing—a community where we can live, work and enjoy a quality of life that comes with maintaining a safe and secure environment.

We are constantly monitoring the safety of our community and proactively working to address any threats through relationship building, education and community outreach. When situations arise, our trained and highly skilled officers respond in a timely manner to eradicate it as quickly as possible and protect anyone from additional harm. Additionally, every officer on the Auburn police force is assigned to one of five sections of the city. On top of meeting the daily demands throughout the city, our officers spend time in their assigned areas to become more familiar with the names, faces, vehicles, pets and other daily activities of the area. This allows them to be better equipped to recognize when something or someone is out of place, needs attention or poses a safety risk. Most of all, it enhances our ability to protect and preserve the community and those who live and work here.
