Message from the Chief 

The Hope Police Department exists to serve our community by providing law enforcement services second to none.

Communication and positive involvement with our community are vital keys to our success. Our professional friendly staff work hard to meet our public safety needs. I couldn't ask to work with a greater group of people or serve a better city. This website is simply one mechanism by which the men and women of our department attempt to provide helpful and useful information to you.

I hope you find this website beneficial. In addition to providing departmental information, we created numerous informational links to quickly direct you to important relevant information such as sex offender registration information, the national do not call registry, victim assistance information and other sites.

Please feel free to contact our department by phone, email, or snail mail at any time with your public safety concerns.
