"Character and Ethics First in Police Service to Our Community"

A message from the Chief:  It is my honor to serve this community as Police Chief.  The Palisade Police Department prides itself in providing professional, efficient, and competent public safety services to the community we serve. We accomplish this goal by emphasizing Character, Ethics, and Communication to guide every decision we make in service to our citizens.  I believe a solid foundation of training, a character-minded working environment, and ethical expectations in place are the necessary ingredients for a professional law enforcement agency.  The Palisade Police Department looks forward to serving citizens and visitors in the Town of Palisade.
