About Us

We are located in Northeast Indiana, 20 miles west of Fort Wayne on U.S. 30. The Department was established in 1922 and consisted of only 3 officers. We currently employ 20 full-time officers, 1 civil and have 1 volunteer reserve officer. We proudly serve the residents of the City of Columbia City.

New Resource

With so many sexual assault cases publicized in the media, we would like to provide indivduals with resources about what this form of violence looks like and how to support survivors of all ages.

Please visit our Victim Services page for a guide dedicated to helping students, parents, and educators better identify and understand sexual assault as a means to ending it.
