The Milford Police Department is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The Department was initially accredited in 1989 and was distinguished as the smallest agency in North America to be granted accredited status at that time. As a full service, value driven police agency that’s responsive to community needs, we are devoted to our core values and committed to asking ourselves “Am I doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right way, and for the right reason?”

The Milford Police Department has established a structure to efficiently deliver services and achieve the goals of the agency. As these goals change with the role of police and society, the agency’s organization must also change. The organizational responsibilities have been divided into three main divisions:
The Patrol Division is the largest component of the agency and is commanded by four patrol sergeants who supervise their respective shifts. This division provides basic police services twenty-four hours a day, handling routine service calls, conducting preliminary case investigations and complete investigations of crimes of a misdemeanor nature.
The criminal investigation division is staffed with detectives that conduct investigations that would unduly strain the resources of the patrol division or cases that require specialized skills. The division is responsible for crime scene processing, case management, truth verification exams, and criminal intelligence relating to organized crime and homeland security.
The Support Services Division consists of non-sworn personnel responsible for record keeping. The Mayors Court Clerk is responsible for supervising the mayor’s court operations, including, security, and maintenance of all computers, software and other automated systems. The Operations Clerk is responsible for department statistics, record keeping and developing and maintaining department policies and procedures in compliance with the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).
