Windsor Police Department

Overview

The Windsor Police Department provides law enforcement services for the community. The department’s mission is to make a difference every day, and quality of life is an important factor in our approach. We strive to provide a safe environment by minimizing the impact of crime and assisting in personal emergencies. 


October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic violence accounts for 15% of all crime reported to law enforcement. For this reason, the Windsor Police Department is acknowledging that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 48% of women and 49% of men have experienced psychological abuse by an intimate partner. Domestic violence perpetrators who own a gun are 5X more likely to kill their partners and domestic violence hotlines across the country receive approximately 20,800 crisis calls a day. Residents are urged to be aware and remember… it can happen in our community.DV png

If you or someone you know is the victim of Domestic Violence, it’s time to #standup and seek help. Everyone deserves to be in a healthy relationship. Asking for help isn't easy and gathering the courage to leave a violent situation can be even more challenging. If you or someone you know is thinking about leaving an abusive relationship—and in in immediate danger—call 911.
