EMERGENCY 9-1-1 / 419.485.3121

The officers and staff of the Montpelier Police Department welcome you to our website. We hope you find it informative.

Chief Dan McGee 2013

August 22, 2014

Our community is of the highest priority to our agency. We believe that we can serve you best by upholding a standard of fair and Constitutional practices. Fair to some, means always benefiting. While to others it means a true analysis of the issue and coming to a decision based upon fact and one that is beneficial to all.

Our officers are thoroughly trained and we often review incidents to help direct our future courses of action. It is by leading in faith and by leading with heart that I hope I can affect our department in a most positive way, which then will benefit the public in a most positive way.

Our community shall not come second. Our community has steadfast companions and watch with our officers. God has given me a challenge to lead this agency in a time where drugs, theft, and violence are becoming more of a norm than a exception. And while I am sure our officers will do their individual best to keep you safe, it is something that our community must do together. This means you must help us to help you.

One of my favorite scriptures is Psalm 82:3-4. We will defend those who cannot defend themselves. And we ask you to help us in making Montpelier a beacon of American living.

God Bless,

Chief McGee
