The mission of every member of the Winchester Police Department is to provide quality service and to seek, in a professional fashion, to preserve and enhance the safety, security, and quality of life within the community.


The Winchester Police Department has been the law enforcement authority in the Town of Winchester, City of Winsted, Connecticut since 1903. The patrol division is currently staffed with a force of eighteen (18) sworn, full-time officers and is responsible for 34 square miles which comprise the town and city, including three (3) lakes, state forests, and both urban and rural areas. The residential population is approximately 11,000 people, however these figures change during the recreational seasons (particularly in the summer when occupancy at Highland Lake is at its highest).
