Racism Has No Place in Our Community

We must talk about these issues to solve them.

We must take action to make change.

We must move towards a better future for the next generation.

And we must do all of this together.
As we continue to work together to stop the spread of COVID-19, we want to take a moment to thank you for doing your part.

Remember, we are in this together. We will get through it.

WRPS Warn of Spoofing of WRPS Telephone Number

WRPS is issuing a warning after receiving reports of fraudulent telephone calls that have been “spoofing” the WRPS phone number.

Officers Issued WRPS Ball Caps

You may soon notice something a little different in the appearance of our officers.This month, officers will have the option of replacing their traditional forage cap with a Service-issued ball cap.

The decision, which is optional for our members, was made in an effort to address member feedback and general modernization of our current police uniform.
