Glen Dale Police Department
The Glen Dale Police Department is one of the finest municipal police departments in the state, led by Chief Edward Vogler.
Glen Dale Police officers patrol the streets of Glen Dale on a 24 hour basis. They also do community policing, which is patrolling from bicycles donated by American Electric Power. This makes the officers more accessible to the public and lets residents discuss their concerns with the officers. The department currently has two bicycles. These bicycles have electric motors attached to them and can travel at approximately 25 mph.
The police department offers several programs in the community to promote safety of the citizens of Glen Dale and promote public awareness against property crime.
Community programs offered are:
D.A.R.E – This program is designed to speak to children at the grade school level about the effects of drugs and peer pressure. It teaches children to say “NO” against alcohol and tobacco. It also explains the penalties for drugs and alcohol. Glen Dale Police is the only police department in Marshall County to present this program. If you should have any further questions about the program, please contact Chief Edward C. Vogler at the above listed telephone number or by e-mail.
