The Monroe Police Department is accepting applications for the 2018 Citizen's Academy

The academy is an opportunity to learn more about the police department through classroom instruction and hands on experiences.  The academy will begin on Wednesday, September 19th and run for twelve weeks.  There are some Saturday classes for driving a police vehicle and going to the firing range.  There is no fee for the academy, however; space is limited so get your application in early.  You can access the application here and turn it into the department, 818 W Main Street, Monroe.  We also have applications at the department.

A Message from the Monroe Police Department

The Monroe Police Department is currently in the process of hiring a new Police Chief following Chief Quenzer's retirement on May 1st.  The City of Monroe is working with the Prothman Company to recruit for this position.  The process is expected to take up to three months at which time we hope to have a new Chief in place.  Until a new Police Chief is in place, Interim Director of Public Safety Larry Dickerson will be serving the department in that role.

We are all very proud of the community we live in, and strive to maintain a safe environment for our citizens to work, play and raise families.  In 2017 the department began implementing our Five Year Strategic Plan to better serve the citizens of Monroe. This plan incorporates four strategic goals which provide direction for our department into the future. These goals are Combating Crime to Enhance Community Safety and Quality of Life, Promoting Community Involvement, Providing Openness and Transparency, and Supporting Professional Development.

It is our pleasure to present to you the 2017 Year End Report and 2017 Employee Awards which showcases our department and highlights significant events that have occurred during the past year. We are most fortunate to have such quality, educated and dedicated personnel that take a high degree of pride in providing the best service possible to our citizens.

We encourage you to use this website to clearly understand what police services are available such as requesting police reports, online reporting, obtaining pet licenses and fingerprinting services. This website is intended to help you learn about our department and its services, to provide information that can keep you safer at home and about town, and to provide opportunities for community feedback on how we can serve you better.

Thank you for your continuing support of the Monroe Police Department. With the ongoing commitment and partnership of our city’s residents and business owners, we can provide the quality policing services you deserve.


The Monroe Police Department is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in providing professional law enforcement services.
