The City of Dowagiac and Cass County enjoy a history of exemplary collaboration to create a network of resources for community safety, security, and enhanced quality of life issues.
There are currently eight officers assigned to the patrol division that work 12-hour shifts supplemented by one part time officer and five reserve officers to fill voids in the shifts created by vacation, sick and personal days. Served in Desert Storm and Shield while in Marine Corps. As cliche as it is, I value intelligence and a sense of humor. The Dowagiac Police Department realizes the importance of community involvement and participation to accomplish its mission, which is to enforce the law and create an environment of safety and security for all of the people who live, work and visit in the City of Dowagiac.The department is committed to forging partnerships with all facets of the community and enhancing our services through this collaboration.
