Chief Jerry Mellinger welcomes you to our web page.
I am proud to be the Chief of a department where the officers work together promoting the department and community. The Department has adopted a proactive approach to Community Policing and as such, is an active participant in the community, attending festivals, providing security for parades, providing lectures and demonstrations. At most any event, you will see police officer presence.
The mission of the Logan Police Department is to create a safer Logan by reducing crime, ensuring the safety of our citizens, and building trust in partnership with our community.
The cornerstone of the organization’s philosophy is its community oriented, grass roots, customer based service style policing effort. Employees strive to fulfill this goal by providing the citizens of Logan with a full range of police services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Both the Department and its employees are committed to providing exceptional service and maintaining an excellent “quality of life” environment for the public. Throughout the year, officers and staff can be seen at local festivals, motorcycle runs, and many other local events. Chief Mellinger encourages his staff to participate in community activities.
The Department’s motto is to “Serve and Protect”. Personnel pride themselves on the personal touch service offered to the community. The department believes in its philosophies of grass roots policing and strive to be proactive rather than reactive. It is for this, and other reasons, that the community continues to strongly support its police department.
