About Us

The Police Department provides 24-hour emergency service to its citizens 365 days a year. The force is comprised of 21 full-time sworn police officers, including two which serve as investigators. Officers are also certified to instruct firearms, self-defense, defensive driving, hazardous materials, and blood borne pathogens.

The lobby is always open for the residents. They will be assisted by one of the seven 911 telecommunicators within our dispatch center. Each telecommunicator is trained in emergency medical dispatch, LEADS, hazardous materials, and TTY. They dispatch police, fire, and ambulance services for Swansea residents.
