WPD K9 Major has just started his 3rd week of patrol dog training and we're working on some future training photos. After the most recent snowstorm, Major thinks he mistakenly went to sled dog school instead.

Thank you to Kennedy School for hosting Lunch with the Cops yesterday! We had eight officers that celebrated Taco Tuesday with the 3rd thru 5th graders. Great questions and a few officers even were asked for autographs.

An update on WPD K9 Major in his 2nd week of patrol dog training. Yesterday Major was learning to work around simulated gunfire and smoke. You can also see that he liked bringing Officer Schaefbauer through muddy spots. 🤭

WPD K9 Major has just started his 10 week patrol dog training in the Twin Cities with Officer Sam Schaefbauer. This training will focus on suspect apprehension, agility, tracking and advanced obedience. K9 Major started the training by calling dibs on the hotel bed instead of his porta-kennel. =)

A big thank you to the anonymous person who bought breadsticks for our staff at Little Caesars today!!!

It's a Friday. It's coffee. What's not to like? Stop by Dunn Brothers on 04/06 and get to know the officers of your community.

Thank you to the school employees and Police Explorer volunteers that help make this training so realistic. We're constantly preparing and working hard to protect and serve our community. "When the moment of truth arrives, the time for preparation has passed."

Some great action photos from yesterday's Lunch with the Cops at Roosevelt! Thanks for the great time kids & school staff!

Thank you Roosevelt School for hosting the "Lunch with the Cops" event yesterday! We had 10 officers eat lunch with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders. Great talks and questions. Yesterday was pajama day at Roosevelt and one of the questions was "why aren't you in your pajamas too?". Police training never prepared us for that one.🚓

Yep...pizza makes us smile too! Get pizza, a smile and contribute to a great cause on Monday! Willmar Police Explorers will be having a fundraiser on Monday, March 19th from 5pm to 7:30pm at the Willmar Pizza Ranch. Funds raised are used by the Explorer Post for conference tuition, uniforms and training equipment. Come meet Explorers and learn about the program for young people age 14 to 20 who want to learn about careers in law enforcement.

Thank you Lakeland Elementary for hosting "Lunch with the Cops" today for 1st through 3rd graders! We had a lot of fun and rate the Tater-Tot Hotdish as 3 stars out of 3! It is Minnesota, so that is the correct menu title. =)

A big thank you to the students at Community Christian School who delivered food to our office today. The students said they wanted to do something positive to represent this day and picked recognizing law enforcement. Thank you! We're fortunate to live and work in such a great community with outstanding young people.

Thank you to the Willmar Schools for making these lunch events possible!

It's International Women's Day and Willmar PD would like to recognize the women of our agency that work to protect and serve our community! Thank you Sue, Linda, Kim, Katie, Nicole and Kelsey! We're proud to call you our sisters in blue.
