👋 TIP OF THE HAT TUESDAY goes out to Officer Walser today...

Today at Wilkins Elementary, our SRO, “Officer Tom”, was able to reward his kindergarten buddy for making positive choices. His incentive was to play catch 🏈...way to go Jak!👏

Tonight is the night to receive holiday safety tips...hope you can join us! We'll give you a tip right now...go to and check out the Report It program ~ where you can create an account that securely stores serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures and scans of receipts so that your items may be more easily identified in the event of theft or loss.

Chief McHale spent some time with his lovely bride today ringing the bell 🛎 #doingthemostgood

PRESS RELEASE: On November 29th, the Marion Police Department received a report of the theft of delivery packages from the front steps of a residence on Jonquil Avenue. Officers arrested Adam Martin Bergman, age 34, on a charge of Fourth Degree Theft. Bergman was transported to the Linn County Jail. Investigators executed a search warrant at the residence and have identified other stolen packages so the investigation is ongoing. ⚠️During this holiday season the public is reminded and encouraged to remove and secure packages as quickly as possible after delivery to their homes. Another option would be to have items shipped to local stores and pick them up there directly when possible; saves a shipping fee and possible theft. As always, be aware of your surroundings and report suspicious activity to local law enforcement.

The holiday season is fast approaching. It can be a busy time of year for everyone, including criminals. The Marion Police Department would like to invite the public to attend a Holiday Safety Tips presentation at the Marion Police Department on Monday, December 11th, from 6:30-7:30pm. This one-hour session will include information and tips related to current crime trends; how to protect your purse, wallet or gifts while shopping, avoiding identity theft, what to do if you become a victim, and more. This presentation is designed to enhance participant awareness of what actions criminals look for that could make them vulnerable during the holiday season.

WOW, another TIP OF THE HAT TUESDAY to our City of Marion firefighters...way to go guys! #reppinforMarion

TIP OF THE HAT TUESDAY goes to our own Sergeant Chipman! We want to congratulate him for his hard work and dedication during his time at the Southern Police Institute. The Administrative Officers Course is one of the most challenging law enforcement leadership curriculums in the world. The commitment he made to the Marion Police Department and this community is commendable as is his drive to become a progressive leader in our agency. We look forward to highlighting his accomplishment as the first member of the Marion Police Department to attend and graduate from the prestigious Southern Police Institute at the City Council meeting on December 7th, 2017.

MAKE IT TO THE TABLE: Don't drink and drive this holiday season! We hope you enjoy yourselves but urge you to plan a sober ride! DID YOU KNOW: From 2012 to 2016, more than 800 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes during the Thanksgiving holiday period (6:00 p.m. Wednesday to 5:59 a.m. Monday), making it the deadliest holiday on our roads. #designateddrivers are the way to go! Thanksgiving Eve - the Wednesday before the holiday, has become one of the year’s biggest drinking days. Whether it's young people home from college or adults who know they have the next day off from work, Thanksgiving Eve has contributed to a rise in drunk driving deaths around the holiday. 👍 Plan ahead and make it to the table with your loved ones on Thanksgiving!

Thank you Linn-Mar High School for inviting us to your Standing Together Opposing Phones While Driving (STOP) 📵event this morning!
