Chief's Message

On behalf of the dedicated and committed men and women of your Center Police Department, I welcome you to our website.  We are hopeful that we will be able to serve you by providing this medium for current information on our programs, staffing, and department resources.

As we view ourselves as your police, we view you, each resident and visitor as part of our community.  As your Chief of Police, I am honored to serve this community.  I deeply appreciate the support and confidence that has been extended to me by the elected officials, the municipal management team, and the residents of this city.  My wife, Lisa, and I are proud to call Center our home and we both intend to be integral participants in this community.

I consider it a privilege to work with members of your Center Police Department.  I have found them to be extremely professional, competent, and eager to serve this community.  By deed, not just discussion, this department delivers quality service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and fifty two weeks a year.

The Center Police Department is comprised of 19 sworn officers, 8 civilian employees and 11 reserve officers.  All are committed men and women dedicated to creating a safer environment and to provide quality service to the 5,000 plus citizens of Center and the thousands of visitors to our City.

I ask you to join me in thanking our dedicated workforce for what they have done in the past and by supporting them now into the future.  They truly deserve this support as they go about their business of protecting and serving our community.

Jim Albers
Chief of Police
