A Letter to the Community
Welcome to the Bowie Police Department's official website. We have long recognized that an exchange of information between the department and the community has played a vital role in our success. A police department has to have a unity with its community in order to be successful and effective. As always, we are genuinely interested in hearing your questions, comments, criticisms, and concerns. The internet has provided us with an exciting new method of sharing information. Of course, you are still invited to call us or stop by.
On these pages you will learn firsthand about our department and the services we provide. We will also share with you information about recent crime trends. Our philosophy is rooted deeply in information exchange and crime prevention. We call this approach "proactive," meaning that we try to anticipate and act upon safety and crime hazards before they materialize. The Bowie Police Department strives to be recognized for the quality of its personnel and service to the community. I am sure that you will agree that the most important goal for any public safety agency is to provide the safest environment possible. Due to your support, we have maintained an exemplary degree of trust with the community which we hope will continue to improve. We are confident that these pages will enhance our effectiveness and result in an even better quality of life.
On behalf of the Bowie Police Department, thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to stop back often, as the information contained in these pages is updated on a regular basis and remember as a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) the department and the citizens that it serves can make Bowie a place we can all be proud of.
Chief of Police
