Police Department


The City of Savage is an exceptional city and the efforts of our police officers, civilian support staff, volunteers, citizens, and the steadfast public safety support from the Mayor and City Council have made a positive impact on the quality of life in the community.  We will continue to meet the needs of our citizens and do it with a professional and dedicated staff. 

A safe community begins with teamwork and partnership with you.  To help prevent crime, remember our crime prevention slogan:  "Lock It or Lose It" and please be involved in your community by reporting suspicious activities.  As always, I look forward to seeing you around our beautiful city.
