Welcome Message from Chief Robert Osborn
Welcome to the Newton Police Department web site. Our site has been designed to provide you with timely information on the Department’s programs and activities.
The partnership between the community and the police is built on trust. We are constantly striving to gain the confidence of our residents by responding and actively adapting to the ever-changing needs of the community. This, however, must be a cooperative effort. The citizens and the Department members must work together for the well-being and benefit of the Newton community. Our success is often based on how well we partner with those we serve.
The Newton Police Department is committed to strengthening support with the citizens that we have sworn to protect and serve. Our agency always makes their best effort to demonstrate excellence in professional police service by consistently displaying a willingness to help those in need, holding the highest ethical and moral standards and promoting continuing education for our officers to aid us in operating more effectively, accordingly and productively.
It is the goal of this web site to provide you with a better understanding of our work and the role we play in the community. Please feel free to view and learn about the various programs offered by the Department. All our activities are aimed at making Newton a better and safer town. I encourage you to use the site to contact the Department and provide your comments or suggestions.
As we tirelessly try to improve the quality of law enforcement services provided, we look forward to the continued cooperation and support from the public as we work to make the County Seat a great place to live, work or visit.
