The Winsted Police Department has its office located with the other city offices, in the downtown Winsted area.
The Department consists of a Chief, three full-time Police Officers, one Reserve Officer, and seven part-time Police Officers; which help provide the city with nearly 21 hours of active police services a day. The full-time Police Officers are EMT-trained to help better serve the public.
This Department is active in both the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted (Winsted Elementary School) and Holy Trinity Schools, such as providing safety talks as needed, conducting an annual bicycle safety talk and rodeo, and the teaching of the D.A.R.E. program to the students.
The Police Department schedules police services for Winstock, Winter Festival, Summer Festival, and other events held during the year in the community. Winstock is a two-day country music event held within our city, which draws approximately 12,000 people per day. The Department works closely with the McLeod County Sheriff’s Office to provide the needed police services for Winstock and other local events.
If you have any questions about the Police Department, or any other services provided, please give us a call at (320)485-2600.
