Letter from Police Chief

Dear Goshen Residents,

It has been my honor to serve the community of Goshen as your Chief of Police over the last two years. Our focus is to improve and maintain the quality of life for our residents as well as building lifelong relationships all those residing in or visiting our great community.

We are here to respond to calls for service in the community as well as special requests from residents, schools, and businesses. In 2019 alone, Goshen Police Officers responded to 30,091 calls for service.

Your police department is comprised of 64 fulltime police officers, two civilian special police officers, eight civilian support staff and three ordinance compliance personnel, all of whom have sworn to protect and serve this community. Our officers range in ages from 21 to 58, and their backgrounds vary as much as their ages. We are an all-inclusive department and proud of the diversity of those serving our community. We also recruit veterans and currently employ three reserves of the United States Armed Forces.

We live in our community, we love our community, and we share the concerns and challenges experienced by our community. I believe that as a society, we must work on equality issues and basic human decency. We must ensure that all people are equal, with no assumptions simply because of race, gender, orientation, religion, etc. Our responsibility as humans is to abolish those biases and continue to break down the barriers between the public and the officials who serve.

Goshen Police Department is dedicated to serving this city. We work with all City government departments to provide the best possible service to residents and visitors. We are in the community 24/7. You may not always see us but we are always patrolling and always available. You can contact us anytime to speak to an officer or request an officer visit you at your location.

Officers are eager to be part of resolving issues or addressing concerns within the city as well as stopping by your special events to support community members and organizations as officer time allows. We are all in this together; making Goshen a great place to live, work, raise a family, and experience the uniqueness of our city.

Sincerely,



 

 

Jose’ Miller #116
Chief of Police
