On behalf of the men and women who wear the badge, the civilian employees and volunteers of the Wheeling Police Department, I would like to welcome you to the Wheeling Police Department website.

The Wheeling Police Department is committed to achieving our mission while adhering to a series of core values that you will find throughout this site. We are dedicated to this community and are proud to promote its safety and welfare.

The men and women that I have the privilege to serve with continue to amaze me every day with their skill, professionalism and bravery, putting themselves in harm’s way daily to protect you and all Wheeling citizens. They live our mission and work with the community and our partners to assure Wheeling is a safe place to live, work, visit and keep developing.

Our hope is that while you visit this site, you will find it helpful and educational. This is your police department and feedback can be provided by contacting any of our members. We welcome your input!
