Welcome to the Lake Park Police Department’s web page. Our Mission is to gain, and the ability to maintain the trust and the support of this community and maintain a great working relationship by building communication and trust between the citizens of Lake Park, and the Police Department.

We work closely with the Harris-Lake Park School District to assist in providing a safe atmosphere for our kids to go to school without additional concerns for their safety. We provide walk-through patrol as well as vehicle patrol during school hours and also for special events that occur at the school or school grounds. At the schools request, we can also provide presentations to both the staff and students on a variety of topics to help educate our community.

We also periodically attend the Seniors Dinner Date to keep our older citizens in the loop of what is going on in our community and be able to address any concerns or needs that they have. If requested we can provide education on a variety of topics to assist the protection of our citizens and their property.

This department will now utilize the vast resources of other law enforcement agencies personnel, databases, and equipment to assist our citizens to provide the best protection as possible for our citizens.
