About the Department

The Utica Police Department is located at 7550 Auburn.  The police department prides itself on being integrated into the community and responding to the demands of our ever-changing City.  Together, in partnership with the community, the department will continue to make the City of Utica a great and safe place to live, visit, and do business.  The police department goal is to provide professional services while upholding the values of the department, Honor, Courage, Integrity.

The police department is currently staffed by 21 members.  Positions within the department include a police chief, sergeants, detective, patrol officers, and dispatchers.  Specialty assignments include investigations, attachment to Macomb SWAT, attachment to federal task force, evidence technician, field training officer, firearms instructor, taser instructor, defensive tactics instructor and many more.

The ever-changing world of law enforcement continues to put strains on the department.  Moving forward, the department is projected to increase education and training amongst its officers.  Some of the immediate goals are to increase the supervision ranks by adding more sergeants and a lieutenant.  The current building is not conducive to a modern policing demand and needs either renovation or being rebuilt.  Lastly, the department will be seeking accreditation in the future to ensure that it stays up-to date with best practices and maintains accountability and professionalism.
