Greetings from the Chief

Welcome to the Dade City Police Department.  Thank you for taking the time to come by and visit us.  We invite you to explore this site and our other social media options such as FacebookInstagram, & Twitter.

I am proud to have been a part of the Dade City community for nearly thirty years.

As we have set the highest standards for ourselves, we expect you to hold us to these.  I welcome any feedback that you may give us on how we are doing. If you received good service or if you see an opportunity for us to improve please let us know. 

We are always looking for like-minded service oriented individuals to join our team.
