The Moses Lake Police Department is in the process
of constructing a strategic plan. A strategic plan is
a document that the department will use to outline
our organizational goals and the actions that are
needed to achieve those goals. An effective strategic
plan should consider the needs of the community.
The Police Department values the communities input
and has developed a small survey as a method of
collecting information. The Police Department will
post this survey on our Police Department website
at as well as our department Facebook
page. Please take a few minutes to participate in this
survey by clicking on the link below, so that we can
understand how we can better serve you.
