Welcome to; the official web site of the West Haven Police Department.

This is an exciting time for the WHPD as many changes are taking place not only with this redesigned site but within the Department as well. We pride ourselves in continuing to recruit the �best of the best� to become West Haven Police officers. Once these individuals pass the rigorous standards and become �West Haven�s finest� they are offered continuing training and special assignments to make them truly �the best� at their profession.

We also boast a state-of-the-art facility that employs the latest technologies in crime fighting and crime scene investigation. These technologies assist us in the fight against crime and enable more cases to be solved. Our goal will continue to be to make West Haven a safer city, reduce the fear of crime, and work in partnership with you, the community in accomplishing this.

One of the many tools we use to provide information and help educate our community members is this web site. One of WHPD�s core values is to strive for "quality through continuous improvement." We will continue to improve this site by making it easier to navigate, keeping it updated and making it more relevant to you, the user.

One area of the web site I encourage you to click on is the �news� section. This section will track major accomplishments, milestones, initiatives, and incidents that are taking place at the Department and in our policing community. In the past, the only way to get information on the Department, the services we offer, or the forms that you need; was by physically visiting the West Haven Police Department. On this site, we have made it possible to be our guest without the necessity to actually come to our facility.

I hope you enjoy our new look and our updated site. We have just begun with the improvements. Over the next year you are going to see even more changes to our web site including pertinent crime data information for your neighborhood, information on �most wanted� individuals, arrests, and a series of on-line training videos that will be both educational and beneficial to our residents. Changes we hope will encourage you to become involved in working with us to make West Haven a safer and better place to live.

Please continue to forward your suggestions and thank you for visiting
