Caledonia Police

Officer Introduction

The Caledonia Police Department is a professional, values-based organization whose community-oriented policing is a way of life. We believe that the highest priority is keeping our residents and visitors safe. In order to be successful, we must engage the community in our efforts. We encourage a teamwork mentality with all of those that wish to make Caledonia a great place to live and raise a family. We aim to be an agency that helps to educate our residents while keeping the peace. This is the foundation that we are built upon and believe this formula is the reason for the success we enjoy today.
