On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Montpelier Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our internet home. This website has been designed with the goal of providing a useful resource for our respected residents and honored guests of the City of Montpelier and Bear Lake Community.

Our primary responsibility is to help maintain the peace and ensure safety. We accomplish that by enforcing laws, responding to emergencies, and serving as a visible presence in the community. Our award-winning MPD Victims Assistance Unit is committed to making crime victims our top priority. Expanding and improving relationships is our goal, and open lines of communication are vital for us to be able to do that. Our success in preventing crime is directly related to citizen involvement

— We listen to YOU!

If you have any questions regarding our department or if we can be of additional service to you, please feel free to contact me by e-mail or telephone my office.

We are all proud to serve you and look forward to our continued partnership of success.

Chief Russell Roper
