The Oswego City Police Department has a budgeted staffing of 51 full-time sworn officers that serve the citizens of Oswego on a 24-hour basis. With the recent trend toward Community Oriented Policing, the Oswego City Police Department has open access to the public on a twenty-four hour basis. As you walk in to the police station you will be personally greeted by a police officer, who is there to assist you any way possible. In addition to standard emergency vehicle patrols, we offer foot/beat patrols, bicycle patrols, and ATV patrols to "protect and serve" the community. The effectiveness of our department is enhanced through the efforts of highly trained and motivated police officers, who strive to make the City of Oswego a better place to live.
