My name is Bob Richardson, and I have the honor of being the Chief of the Battle Ground Police Department. I would like to welcome you to our website and take this time to introduce you to our organization.

The Battle Ground Police Department is a full-service, community-based law enforcement agency that consists of 27 sworn and professional staff members who are committed to providing the highest possible level of service to our community. Sworn positions include Uniform Patrol Operations, the Detective Division, a K-9 team, a School Resource Officer, and assignments to the Southwest Regional SWAT Team. The department's professional staff includes an Administrative Assistant, the Records Unit, and the Property and Evidence Unit.

Our mission is to provide the highest level of police services while working in partnership with our community to find solutions to crime and quality of life issues.

I am extremely proud of the men and women that I have the pleasure to work with at the Battle Ground Police Department and our goal is to provide a level of service that exceeds your expectations.

I hope you find this website both informative and helpful. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us by phone, email, or in person.
