Police Department

Welcome to the Centralia Police Department's web page. It is our hope the information contained will be insightful to a user and informative to a reader.

The Centralia Police Department is comprised of two divisions. The Dispatch and Uniform Divisions. Within the uniform division, is the Code Enforcement officer.

The Centralia Police Department maintains a mission to: Serve and Protect all people by enforcing all laws and providing services to ensure a safe and secure environment. Although the mission of the Police department can be written within a sentence, it takes many factions working together to achieve success.

Policing in a growing and vibrant community takes more than twelve police officers five full time dispatchers and a code enforcement officer. Success is achieved through all citizens with success in mind to have input. From the Centralia public School system to a city council to a chamber of commerce. All being far sighted to look to the future to make a great community better. The Police Department grows with new subdivisions and new schools. Not just in number of employees but available services.

The Centralia Police Department has a fleet of five patrol vehicles and a code enforcement vehicle. We maintain a 24/7 dispatch and uniform patrol presence. The people that make up the Centralia Police Department are dedicated to the mission of the Police department and just as importantly dedicated to the growth and betterment of the community at large.

I thank you for taking the time to read the information provided. Should you have a question that I can answer, please feel free to drive to our community and see what we have to offer like clean and safe streets. While you're here, take the time to look at the many well maintained parks. While at the parks think about the safe community we have here. Once you do that you will want to become a Centralia resident. The Centralia Police Department can not help you move to Centralia, but we will do all we can to make your life here safe and secure.
