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. And, as a visitor of our city, we want you to have an enjoyable and safe experience as well.
In fact, at the Auburn Police Department, we consider ourselves the city's frontline ambassadors. We are constantly monitoring the safety of our community and proactively working to address any threats to it through relationship building, education and community outreach efforts. When situations arise that require police intervention, our trained and highly skilled officers respond in a timely manner to eradicate it as quickly as possible and protect anyone from additional harm.
The Auburn Police Department is committed to protecting the residents and visitors of this community. With both proactive and quick-response police services, we're doing just that on a daily basis. Key services include:
From responding to 911 calls, to assisting with accidents and vehicle breakdowns, to administering first aid and coordinating additional emergency care, our patrol officers are serving the needs of community members who have been hurt, injured or placed in situations that need police assistance.
Formed to provide police support in serious, violent crimes, the Auburn Emergency Response Team (ERT) services residents in Auburn, Garrett, Butler, Waterloo and DeKalb County. Working in conjunction with Northeast Indiana SWAT, the ERT – equipped to handle the most volatile of situations – responds to a number of high-risk situations, including felony warrant service, barricaded subjects, hostage incidents, drug raids, felony search warrants, civil disturbances and personal protection.
When crimes are committed, our trained detectives work tirelessly to retrieve stolen goods, find missing persons, apprehend criminals and provide further protection for those who were affected by the crime.
The Auburn Police Department K-9s are trained and certified to detect the presence of marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, crack and ecstasy. Our K-9s also are used in the search for lost persons; for tracking the scent of criminals who have fled; and detecting objects at crime scenes.
