SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
The Town of Kirkland Police Department was started in 1975 as a part time rural patrol to service the Township of Kirkland. The department began with a few part time officers who worked evenings and weekends. The department was disbanded and reorganized in 1977. At this time there was a separate police department for the Village of Clinton which operated with two full time and a few part time officers. In 1994 the Village Police Department disbanded and integrated with the Town Police.
