Message from the Chief Of Police

Chief D. A. PalsonIt is my pleasure to welcome you to the Dryden Police Service which has a proud history dating back to 1910.  The Dryden Police Service strives to provide a safe and healthy community as indicated through our motto, “Dedicated to Community Safety”.  In order to accomplish this, we engage our community partners and stakeholders in a collaborative multi-faceted approached focussing on prevention and intervention.

The Service will continue to invest strongly in the concept of community-based, intelligence-led, problem-orientated models of policing.  Although the Dryden Police embraces the latest technology, traditional “tried and true” methods of service delivery are often utilized, such as regular foot patrol of the downtown and parks.  Considerable energy is devoted to crime preventing initiatives and work with our youth, partnering with the local schools.

Our sworn and civilian personnel have lived and worked in Dryden for most of their careers and as a result, are woven into the fabric of the community.   I am very proud of the officers and civilian members of this police service and their dedication to the community.

We remain dedicated to community safety and are proud to be your Police Service.
