Your officers are: Chief Tom David, Sergeant Gary Pohl, Officer Andrew Raque, Officer Tom Yokom, Steve Hile and Officer Mary Haverlin.

Chief Tom David is responsible for all aspects of NPD operations. Crime Prevention is EVERYONE'S responsibility. The police department plays an important role in keeping the community safe. However, the police can't be everywhere, all the time. The success of our crime prevention & community service programs depends on you, for only with your participation can these programs be effective.

The department's primary mission is to build a safe community by providing trained professionals to promote crime prevention, and to effectively conduct proactive law enforcement through community involvement. Officers are committed to the philosophical elements of Community Policing. Through our response to community concerns and the development of positive relationships throughout the community, we strive to impact the quality of life issues that make the City of Northfield a great community. Officers patrol the entire city and their response time to any call for assistance is usually never more than 2-3 minutes.


Police Programs

In addition to our standard law enforcement duties the Northfield Police Department provides several programs:

House Watch program

The Department's House Watch program is very successful. Officers will keep close tabs on the house while residents are away and will take action should unauthorized vehicles or persons be near the house. The Department’s Safe House program is initiating now. Safe House will provide NPD officers a list of inhabitants, and emergency contact information. All information supplied is strictly confidential, but can help in case of emergency.

Senior Watch program

The SeniorWatch program is designed with our senior citizens in mind. Senior residents in Northfield receive special attention with this program, and if any problem is discovered during our routine daily patrols – a family member is contacted.

Crime Alert program

Our Crime Alert program is a secure electronic email distribution list that provides timely alerts to all participants regarding known or suspected criminal activity. Your email information is private and not shared.


Vehicle Stickers

Northfield Vehicle Stickers for residents of Northfield are available. These are certainly not mandatory, but they are most helpful to our police department. If you would like one or more stickers for your vehicle(s), please call City Clerk Lucy Martin at (502) 262-9095 to request yours today. Each sticker is to be displayed on the driver's side rear bumper or the driver's side rear window.
