Chief of Police Edwin Brewster would like to thank you for visiting our new home page. Chief Brewster is dedicated to community oriented policing. He believes that the partnership between the community and the police is the most important link in keeping crime under control and being able to efficiently serve the community.
The Woodstock Police Department is comprised of 19 full time and part time officers and an Emergency Dispatch Center that has 10 full time and part time dispatchers. In 1998 the Woodstock Police Department responded to over 6500 calls for service. In addition to responding to calls for service the department also conducts various community oriented functions such as the Cadet Explorer Program for local youths.
Chief Brewster is also dedicated to giving the community the most "bang for its buck" and actively pursues various grants for funding at no expense to the tax payers. The Woodstock Police Department recently computerized the entire department and the entire cost was funded through grants. This includes laptop computers that will be placed in all patrol cars. In the past 2 years Chief Brewster has obtained over $75,000.00 in grant monies for his department.
We hope you will come and visit our lovely town in person. We at the Woodstock Police Department would also like you to return and visit our home page as often as you like and we will try and update it on a regular basis.
