EMERGENCY 9-1-1 / 419.485.3121

The officers and staff of the Montpelier Police Department welcome you to our website. We hope you find it informative.

Chief Dan McGee 2013

November 2, 2014

"Community" is something that I think we often take for granted. We like to say it. We like to implore it, but we don't like to involve ourselves in it, unless it is comfortable and expedient for our own purposes.

One thing I hope that we look at is we have giving hearts. Another thing I hope we look at is that we have the ability to affect change. Not selfish change, but change which whole-heartedly affects those people around us who are less able or in need.

One of my goals is to show you that our department, and the officers, are a caring and giving agency. Beyond our duties we help with many charity events, donate money, and volunteer time. I hope we can impress upon our community that giving of one's time can be a very rich and rewarding effort. You can make the difference in the life of someone!

Plato once said "The community which has neither riches nor poverty, will always have the noblest of principles". One interpretation is that if we give of our hearts or riches everyone can have something. For the givier, it is Honor. And Honor is one of the most noble of principles to have.

God Bless,

Chief McGee
