The Uniform Patrol Division is comprised of men and women dedicated to the safety and security of the citizens of Duluth. The Division is headed by Captain S. Hamlin. Throughout his tenure, he has predominantly served in patrol, rising from an Officer to the current position of Captain of the Uniform Patrol Division.

The Crime Scene Investigation section of the Duluth Police Department has grown and expanded in the past few years. We now have two full-time investigators, and our unit has transitioned to a sworn component.  This unit is responsible for the processing of crime scenes varying from entering autos to homicides. 

The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is comprised of two units, Investigations, and Community Policing. CID is tasked with follow-up investigations into active criminal cases occurring within the jurisdiction of the City of Duluth, providing focused preventive crime identification and preventive enforcement and direct community police service and educational programs. 

The Communications section of the police department is "the heart" of the agency operations. Our communications officers (or radio operators) are responsible for many tasks including: answering incoming calls for service, responding to officers requests for information, dispatching calls, logging information, confirming warrants, entering warrants, and handling other types of incoming emergencies as well as non-emergencies. They also monitor several of our cameras located in different parts of the city-looking for suspicious activity.


On behalf of the men and women of the Duluth Police Department, welcome and thank you for visiting our website. Here, you can find helpful information about the services we offer and how to contact our staff.

At the Duluth Police Department, our mission is to ensure the safety of our community through enforcement of the law while maintaining the highest level of integrity and professionalism. The men and women of our department are committed to enhancing the quality of life for the citizens in our community by protecting and serving with fairness, courtesy, and respect.

We believe Duluth’s greatest asset is its people, so we continually strive to build and strengthen relationships with those we serve. The Duluth Police Department offers several programs aimed at engaging those who are interested in learning about their police department or how they can take an active part in the safety of their own community. We encourage you to learn more about those programs and perhaps enroll in one of the citizens' police academy classes available throughout the year.

I am proud to serve as your Chief of Police, and I promise to uphold the highest standards of policing, ensuring that our citizens receive the best in services.

If I can be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any other member of our police department staff.
