Department Information

The Rochester Police Department has an authorized strength of 130.5 sworn officers, supported by 57 non-sworn members and an annual budget of approximately $18.9 million. The department provides a full range of patrol and investigative services: its records management services also assist the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office.

The Department enjoys the support of an active body of citizen volunteers.

With the total commitment of city officials and the citizens of the city, the Department is deeply engaged in Community/Problem Oriented Policing activities. The Department continues to work in close collaboration with the school district in providing a Police/School Liaison Program.
