A Message from the Chief

Crete is a wonderful place to work and live. Those who work for you at the police station take pride in being nothing more than the community Helpers that Crete's children learn about in school. This reasoned approach to emergency service ensures residents and visitors may depend on a fair, just and compassionate response to their needs

The Crete Junior Police Patrol is a fun and exciting way for fourth graders to learn about crime prevention and ways to be safe. During our program, police officers teach the students about home security plans, what to do in case of severe weather, what to do in an emergency, what to do in a disaster, internet safety, the dangers of drugs and gangs and more. The students work in the classroom and are taken on a tour of the police station.

Graduating students will be invited to walk in the 2014 Saline County Fair Parade. The 2014 class will graduate on April 24th.

Crete children have been participating in the Junior Police Patrol since 1997.







The city of Crete tests it's warning sirens at 10 am on the first Friday of each month between April and November. The sirens are sounded twice because we are testing the main system and the backup system. If the weather is threatening on the day of the scheduled test, it will be rescheduled for the following Friday.
