Chief of Police
It is our goal to protect and serve the citizens of the community, the business owners, and our visitors. Our approach is to provide a safe and secure environment where everyone can enjoy the special culture of Winslow.
Winslow Police Department is a full service department operating with 22 sworn officers and 9 civilians. This includes the Director of Police Services, 2 Lietenants, 3 Sergeants, 2 Investigators, 4 Corporals, and 10 officers.
The Winslow Police Department participates in Drug and Gang Task Force and the School Resource Officer programs.
The basic purpose of WeTip is to provide an absolutely anonymous crime reporting resource to residents, students, and business throughout the entire nation. WeTip has been established by citizens and for citizens who have information regarding a crime, but fear reprisal from the criminal they are turning in. WeTip has been created as an effective tool for law enforcement, not to circumvent law enforcement, but to help law enforcement and corporate security investigations. This tool is for the segment of the population that will not contact the law enforcement agency directly.
The informant calls the WeTip Hotline. All calls are anonymous not just “confidential.” Confidential means that someone knows your name and promises not to tell, until they are subpoenaed. “Anonymous” means that nobody knows who you are and there is absolutely no way to find out. We have no taping, tracing or caller ID. We have no way of know who the caller is.
The very first thing they hear is “This is the WeTip Crime Hotline, do not give your name or identify yourself in any way.” If at any time the caller starts to identify themselves, the operator will interrupt telling the caller, “I have to disconnect this call, please call back and speak to another operator.” The reason for this is that we absolutely cannot know who is on the other end of the phone line, but we do want the information.
