- The Online Gateway to McKenzie County and Watford City

Chief's Message

On behalf of the men and women of the Watford City Police Department I would like to welcome you to our web site.

We are a community policing agency, which for us means that we will serve and protect the citizens to the best of our ability, even when it may not be a police matter. We will do this through providing traditional law enforcement services such as patrol and investigations, as well as advice and resources that will hopefully help you to get the answers you are looking for. This also includes being proactive in our approach to community problems and working with everyone to correct or fix those problems before they become bigger issues. My hope is that this web site provides you with an extension of the service we provide to the community on a daily basis.

However, the Watford City Police Department is far more than just about providing services. We also partner with numerous community organizations, clubs, coalitions, and groups to achieve the community wide goal of making Watford City a friendly, family oriented community with lots of things to be involved in.

Our goal is to treat all people with Dignity and Respect, regardless of what they have done, in order to ensure fair and impartial treatment of all people that we come into contact with and to set an example for young people in the community.

I am proud of the men and women who serve you and invite you to contact us whenever you need something or you just want to talk.

Thank you for your support!
Arthur D. Walgren

The Buzz

In Watford I got to go to my first National Park. I made some friends and we went to the badlands and saw things we never heard of before like jackrabbits and mule deer. In my opinion Watford is the best city ever!
