Police Department

Responsibilities
The Rochester Police Department is a full-service police agency. The men and women of the department are dedicated to providing the highest quality police services to all those who live, work, and shop within the city.

It is important to remember that the Police Department works in partnership with the citizens we serve. Citizens should always feel free to contact our dispatchers to request police assistance or to merely ask a question.

Rochester or Rochester Hills?
At times, people may confuse the City of Rochester with the City of Rochester Hills; each is a distinct city. The Rochester Police Department serves the city with 26 full time employees and a few seasonal staff. The department is responsible for all police services within the 3.8-square-mile boundary of the city. Police services in Rochester Hills are provided by the Oakland County Sheriff's Office from a substation within the City of Rochester Hills.
