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

February 18, 2014

I believe one of our goals as officers is to make a direct impact to our community. We do this by not only our service on duty, but service off duty. I whole-heartedly believe that we should use our time on earth for a greater purpose. Respecting each other and our boundaries. Using our good fortune and intelligence to help those who are less fortunate. Being a good community member and good Christian is an essential key in the fight to keep peace amongst us.

I don't believe my mission is to simply arrest or respond. I believe I have been given a greater purpose in life and that is to positively impact those around me through leadership and building positive community relations.

Begin with the end in mind. Run the race with endurance, because it is not a sprint. Don't be afraid to keep God in front of you. Don't be afraid to employ principles of being a good neighbor. We should do these things without thought and without a desire of reward. It is only then we will not fear our society.

God Bless,

Chief McGee
