Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Columbia City Police Department to protect lives and property of the citizens we serve. We will strive to reduce crime, the fear of crime and use proactive and progressing planning to ensure citizens have a safe community to live, work or play. Officers of the Columbia City Police Department will conduct themselves with honor, integrity and high ethical standards while performing their duties.

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 4 volunteer reserve officers. We proudly serve the residents of the City of Columbia City.

We would like to give our deepest appreciation and thanks to Master Patrolman Pete Yorg, who after 31 years of service to our community and the department has retired.
