Welcome

Welcome to the Milton Police Department website. I am very proud of the professional staff of the Milton Police Department. It is an honor for all of us to serve the community and enjoy the high quality of life in Milton. Effective policing involves the entire community united in a team effort. All of you are an integral part of this team and we always welcome any suggestions, comments, etc.

The City of Milton Police Department officially became a WILEAG Accredited Agency on December 5, 2014.  The department is appreciative of all of the hard work that the department's staff and volunteers put into the process.
