The mission of the Clearwater Police Department is to consistently provide effective, professional and dependable law enforcement services to every citizen, visitor and business within the city of Clearwater.
Clearwater officers embrace a “preservation-of-all-life” philosophy and practice a community policing approach that is customer-service centric. Clearwater officers make our community better by preventing crime and effectively responding to crime. They are trained to be “community champions” who engage our citizens, solve problems and improve the quality of life in Clearwater.
The strategic plan of the police department adopts a precision policing approach that focuses efforts on:
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4p.m. For copies of accident, crime, and incident reports, records checks, solicitor permits, and police activity reports.
Closed in observance of these holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day After Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
