Buena Vista Police Department

Welcome to the website for the Buena Vista Police Department.


We invite you to browse through our information, acquainting yourself with your police department. You will notice that we have provided you with the opportunity to communicate with the department via e-mail. Please feel free to express any questions or concerns you may have.


Our department believes in “community policing”, a strategy that calls for high police visibility in the community and open lines of communication between police and the people we serve. Our officers offer a wide array of programs to reduce and prevent crime. In return, we get terrific cooperation from residents and business people who report suspicious conduct and crime, form neighborhood watch groups, and check on the welfare of others. Our department enjoys our community’s trust, but we do not take it for granted.


We strive to be a proactive force in this community, with the vision of helping to improve the quality of life for our residents and visitors through partnerships with groups and individuals within the city of Buena Vista. As we progress throughout the twenty-first century, the Buena Vista Police Department, while not forgetting the traditions of the past, is taking innovative strides in technology to stay current with the concerns of the community we serve.
