Policies & Procedures

All police organizations operate under a set of written procedures to be followed in a wide range of situations. The Portage Department of Public Safety's - Police Division procedures are designed to give officers, investigators, civilian employees, and command staff a clear guide to dealing with the wide variety of situations that police personnel must handle, and a set of instructions for ensuring that all services are offered and accomplished in an effective, legal, and ethical manner. Policies and procedures must be read and acknowledged by all personnel to whom they apply, and in some cases, there are tests to assure understanding.

Many Portage Department of Public Safety - Police Division policies and procedures are available for public review. Other policies and procedures are available upon request. We ask that you submit these requests through the FOIA process so they can be tracked and reviewed.
