127 Court St., Otsego MI 49078 | Phone: (269) 692-6111 | Fax: (269) 692-3478


The Otsego Police Department welcomes you.  We are a 24/7 department staffed by 9 sworn officers.  The on-duty officer may be contacted anytime by dialing (269) 692-6111.  Our office hours are Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.

Police Equipment

Our department is fortunate to have a wide range of technology and equipment at our disposal.

All of our patrol vehicles have full feature laptops to allow us to have access to as much information at our fingertips as possible. Our vehicles have in-car cameras with body mics which greatly assist in documenting incidents. Although we hope to never have to use them we now have bean bag shotguns and rifles installed in our patrol vehicles.

You may notice an officer out on bicycle patrol. We recently added that as a patrol option for our officers. The bicycle has been a great way to get out of the vehicle and interact with the public. In addition to the positive interactions with the public the bicycle has also proven to be a proactive way of finding children out past curfew!

Police Cruisers

Traffic Enforcement

Traffic safety is something we take seriously.  We are always looking at ways of making Otsego a safer place for our citizens and their children.  We have a movable radar trailer that we place in areas of concern throughout the year.  If you would like to request the trailer be placed in a certain area to raise speed/speed limit awareness please contact us.
