Community Policing
Community Policing is a management approach that promotes community, government, business and police partnerships; proactive problem solving; and community engagement to address the cause of crime, fear of crime and other community issues. Community Policing is based on the theory that the prevention of crime is the responsibility of the entire community.

A main objective of the Greendale Police Department is to promote citizen safety by encouraging a teamwork attitude with elected officials, civic organizations and local business owners. By reaching out to offer our partnership and services, we share in their successes, encouraging their participation in crime prevention efforts undertaken by the Police.

Mission Statement
The Greendale Police Department is committed to working with the community to solve problems and achieve positive outcomes. We recognize that a pro-active approach to crime prevention and crime reduction is the highest priority.
To achieve this, the Greendale Police Department will partner with the community to preserve peace, reduce fear, and make Greendale a safe place to live, work, shop and play.
We will provide the best law enforcement services and community policing services to our residents, public, and the business community.
