Message from the Chief

The officers and staff of the Westlake Police Department are proud to serve the residents and businesses of Westlake. We provide 24-hour law enforcement and emergency services to all persons living, working or visiting the city. In addition to traditional police responsibilities such as accident and crime investigation, Westlake officers engage in a wide variety of community policing activities.

We are committed to improving the quality of life in our city and have found the best way to make Westlake safer is to partner with citizens and build understanding.

I invite you to familiarize yourself with the many events and programs we offer. This website offers a glimpse into the values and practices which drive our personnel. The men and women of the Westlake Police Department serve this community with distinction, and look forward to demonstrating our commitment to public safety.
