How are we doing?


At the ODUPD, we hold all of our officers to high standards of integrity and professionalism. It's important to recognize officers who exceed the expectations of those we serve, and celebrate the important connections we are building in our community.

We also strive to maintain an open line of communication for citizens to share suggestions and file complaints.
