Police Department

Residents and visitors to the Proctor area are protected by the City's Police Department 24 hours a day/365 days a year.

The Proctor Police Department (PPD) proudly serves a community with about 3000 residents just south west of Duluth.  Presently our agency consists of 7 full-time officers, two civilian clerical workers and one part time animal control officer. As our community continues to expand, we continue to strive with updating our department with personnel and resources as needed to ensure the same high commitment to public safety.

The Proctor Police Department prides itself on being a Community Oriented Police Agency and we try to have as many positive contacts with the public as possible.  This includes a very intense DARE program, community meetings, Safety Scoop award program, periodic patrol on foot, vacation house watch and active participation in the Safe and Sober program.

We hope you enjoy the information provided for you in our web site. If any member of the Proctor Police Department can be of assistance to you, please feel free to call us.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF

For the Record:
As the Chief Law Enforcement Executive Officer for the City of Proctor, I would like to go on record saying that the Proctor Police Department takes no position in respect to the annexation issue between the City of Proctor and Midway Township.  The Proctor Police Department will always support our elected officials and residents within the City of Proctor. However, the annexation decisions are province of the elected officials between the two communities.

As for any questions or concerns that any Midway resident might have regarding the operation or procedures of the Proctor Police Department, I openly invite you to stop by my office, so we can sit down and address them.  The coffee pot is always on.

Bottom Line: Whether the annexation takes place or not, the Proctor Police Department looks forward to providing you Community Based Law Enforcement Services.  We stand ready to provide law enforcement and emergency services to any community when mutual aid is requested and we are available to do so.

Proudly Serving Since 2002,

Chief Walter C. Wobig
