About the Police Department:
The Lake City Police Department is a 24/7 service which is dedicated to its citizens and City.

All police officers are trained in First Aid and carry some of the latest emergency medical equipment in their squad cars.

Three marked squad cars are used to provide constant patrol and give service to the community. The Department is made up of 10 full-time officers, and 8 part-time officers, and 8 police reserve officers.

The Police Department has been active within the local school system since 1993 with D.A.R.E. , Counter-Act and more recently the “Correct Choices” program for students. Since 2003, a School Resource Officer has been jointly funded by the City and the ISD 813. He is a full-time police officer that spends his time between the high school and the elementary school.

Some additional programs which the police officers are involved with include National Night Out, Toward Zero Death Challenge and Drug Task Force.
