The Manistee City Police Department is a young, progressive department with many plans for the future. The department works in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies and rescue services to provide the best service to the community and its guests. The department currently has a staff of 19 full- and part=time employees and averages 1,400 documented complaints annually.

Currently there are five patrol cars which patrol 40 miles of city streets. The department also has a car for the detective sergeant’s use. During the summer months there is a bike patrol for community policing and summer events. Officers regularly conduct foot patrols throughout the downtown area, the Riverwalk and local beaches. A Polaris Ranger beach vehicle funded by a Local Revenue Sharing Grant will allow officers to patrol the beaches more effectively and respond to emergencies more quickly.
