The Reedsport Police Department is a 24-hour per day, seven day per week, full time law enforcement agency. The Police Department's mission is to reduce victimization of our citizens, reduce the effect of crime on victims, and to maintain the quality of life in Reedsport. The Police Department facility houses a full time Communications Center and Municipal Jail. The administration of the Police Department is imparted by the Chief of Police, on Patrol Sergeant, one Police Corporal and one Administrative Assistant/Dispatch-Records Supervisor, Dial-a-Ride Coordinator. 

The department's Patrol/Investigations Section staffing is approved for six sworn officers, on Police Corporal, one Patrol Sergeant and the Chief of Police. Sworn officers are responsible for deterring and detecting criminal activities, responding to calls for service, investigating criminal complaints, maintaining traffic safety through enforcement efforts, community problem solving through community oriented policing strategies, code enforcement, animal control, and all aspects of corrections related to jail and inmate management, and emergency management planning. One Officer is assigned as a School Resource Officer. This assignment services the two local schools, all district properties and is partially funded by external partnerships. We have two police K9's assigned to patrol and look forward to enhance training for both that will assist patrol, in apprehension and tracking capabilities.

The department's Dispatch/Records Section is a secondary Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) which provides dispatch services for the Police Department, the Reedsport Volunteer Fire Department, Gardiner Volunteer Fire Department, Winchester Bay Volunteer Fire Department and the Lower Umpqua Hospital Ambulance services. Dispatch/Records staff also functions as front counter clerks, records clerks, assist with required jail monitoring and first-aid duties and provide general after hour city service for the community building and other city activities. They are also an answering point for after hour city utility alarms. 

We have five active volunteers whom serve the community doing a variety of jobs, jail monitoring, court bailiff, ordinance enforcement, security checks, fingerprints, public relations and many other valuable tasks.
