Before a full time agency was developed, a town marshal patrolled the streets. As well as maintaining peace in the city, the town marshal was also in charge of maintenance for the city. In the 1970’s the police department developed in to a full time agency. Over the years, the agency has expanded by the introduction of five full time positions and two volunteer reserve positions. The police department is in charge of handling all crime in the city from major crimes to city code violations.
