The Holland Police Department is dedicated to providing quality services to our residents and the community while we strive to continue to improve services as well as the level of protection offered. An important responsibility of our police department is to provide the community with information pertaining to public safety and crime prevention while seeking information from them to assist us with criminal investigations. Information sharing between law enforcement and the community is vital to safety, crime prevention and solving crimes.
We model our practice on the community policing philosophy and continuously seek to integrate our officers into the community in order to reduce crime and foster positive relations. To effectively control and prevent crime, we strive for cooperation and seek recommendations from all of our citizens. The perceptions and opinions of the people we serve is important to our overall operation, so as a community we can all work together to improve.
Many times people struggle with the question of whether or not to call the police when they see or know of something which causes them to think "should I call the police"? I strongly urge you do make that call. We would rather respond and find it to be nothing than not be notified and learn an incident could have been prevented.
