Message From Chief Reed Merinuk

One of the missions of the Woodbury Police Department is to improve a nd maintain a good quality of life for all of our citizens. As a lifelong resident, this mission is very important to me. We are committed to community policing and the principles behind that initiative. The city can only be as strong as the people who take ownership of their neighborhoods. You should know your neighborhood and the people who live within it. Call us IMMEDIATELY when you see something that is not right. Often, citizens wait until they see an officer after an incident occurs. This is a disadvantage to us when trying to solve a problem or a crime. If it affects your quality of life or draws your suspicion, call us right away. We encourage citizens and community groups to contact us about our services. As a citizen of the city, I would expect a proactive, professional, and progressive police department. As the Chief, I will make every effort to be proactive, professional and progressive and also give you the citizen, a sense of security that you deserve.

We provide many services to the city, which are readily available. From our traffic unit to our crime prevention officer, we will attempt to address any of your concerns. Please contact me or any of my staff, and we will help. I am always available, but due to appointments, training and various meetings, please call ahead before coming to the station.

Reed A. Merinuk, Chief
Woodbury Police Department
