Ron Casalenda, Chief of Police

A Message From Chief Casalenda

Having worked for the citizens of Douglas as a law enforcement officer for over thirty five years, it is a great honor to have been appointed as the Chief of Police. I have worked various assignments with the department including assignment in Douglas schools as the D.A.R.E. Officer and School Resource Officer. I would like to renew and revitalize our “community policing” efforts, which simply means we work in partnership with our local citizens and businesses to proactively build an environment that deters and prevents crime. While the officers of the Douglas Police Department are prepared and respond efficiently and effectively to every emergency call for service and every crime report, we are also involved within the community, providing crime prevention and safety education and information and assistance to our businesses and citizens to make our community a better place to live. With this in mind, please call 307-358-3311, for community input; positive or negative or suggestions or information that will assist in our mission of service to the citizens of Douglas.
