What We Do

Great policing isn’t just about being tough on crime – it’s about forming relationships, building bridges, and forging bonds between our men and women in blue and our community. Along with keeping our streets safe, the Elkhart Police Department reaches out to those we wish to protect and serve with events like Night Out Against Crime, our yearly Safe Trunk or Treat, and Coffee With A Cop. We are always looking for ways to improve our relationship with the good men and women of our city to move forward toward our vision of a crime-free Elkhart.

How closely do you take a look at your money?

Recently, there's been a spike in counterfeit money reports, so it's important to keep an eye on your cash! Here are some things to look out for:

💰Look for “Hollywood” money, or money that looks like U.S. money, but with foreign writing on it.
💰Although harder to spot, one dollar bills are often changed into 100 dollar bills.
💰Offenders like to pass counterfeit money at drive thru's, gas stations, and even banks - anywhere money is exchanged quickly.

If you find yourself in possession of counterfeit money, please make a report!

🔑Lock up every time! 🔑

Whether it's your car or your home, locking your doors helps prevent theft, as many burglaries are crimes of opportunity. Check your doors after exiting your vehicle and home to be sure they are locked.

If you are the victim of a burglary, please make a report. Be aware and be safe!

The Elkhart Police Department would like to thank the community for the overwhelming support yesterday for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Just to name a few business that showed their appreciation by dropping off “goodies” Urban Swirl, Woodland Manor, Hellenic Senior Living, Eastlake Nursing and Rehabilitation and Star Uniform.

Thank you!
