I am pleased to welcome you to the Sparta Police Department web page. The men and women of this department are dedicated to making Sparta a truly unique and special place to live, work and play. We strive to accomplish this with a strong and positive relationship with the community that is grounded in open and honest communication. By providing intelligence led proactive patrol, youth programs such as PAL, our new Police Youth Division, senior programs, and a very close relationship with our public and private schools we hope to enhance that cooperative relationship. We strive to use the most current technology and social media available to find additional ways to interact with the citizens we serve. Many people commented that during Hurricane Sandy and in the recovery days immediately following the majority of the information they needed was obtained through our facebook page and our twitter messages. We are very proud of the effectiveness of these endeavors and will continue to explore new and innovative ways to improve communication.
Please take the time to explore our web site and get additional information on programs such as child car seat inspections, prescription medication drop box, vacant home/business checks, alarms, the “good morning program” and crime prevention programs. We look forward to assisting you in any way we can.
Ernest I Reigstad, Chief of Police
