To protect and serve

What We Do

The Elkins Police Department is responsible for:

  • Safeguarding the lives and property of the people we serve,
  • Reducing the occurrence and fear of crime,
  • Enhancing public safety while working with the community members to improve their quality of life.

Notes from the Department

The Elkins Police Department serves the community by protecting citizens and property, preventing crime, enforcing laws, and maintaining order. Our goal is to do so with honor and integrity, while at all times conducting ourselves with the highest ethical standards to maintain public confidence.

We now have a medication drop box located in the front of our building.  If you have any medication you would like to get rid of, please utilize this drop box.
