About the WPD

Woodstock Police Department


Our mission is to pursue professional excellence by promoting effective partnerships with the community to prevent crime and to enhance the quality of life in Woodstock.

Our four core values reflect what we strive for and will demonstrate as a Police Department.

We strive to use the most advanced skills and methods to provide a variety of law enforcement services. We maintain the highest level of professionalism by adhering to nationally recognized practices and by participating in vigorous and comprehensive training programs.

We serve in ways that bring honor to the police profession by building trust, confidence, and respect with the general public. We pledge to treat all people fairly and to fully uphold the constitutional rights of all individuals we encounter.

We serve the public by responding in a professional, courteous, and efficient manner. We will work together with citizens, organizations, and other agencies to proactively solve community problems and to maintain a safe environment.

We work cooperatively together and with other public safety officials respecting and supporting each other’s roles and responsibilities. We encourage and recognize creativity and initiative that further the goals of the City of Woodstock and its Police Department.
