The Williston Police Department is devoted to creating and maintaining strong relationships of mutual trust between law enforcement and the community we serve. The Williston Police Department believes these relationships are critical to maintaining public safety and effective policing.

As a part of Community Awareness, we hope to educate the public in several areas while involving the members of the community in various activities. The Williston Police Department seeks an open relationship with the community as we realize most interaction with officers is in the nature of enforcement activities. We want to break the negative connotation that can be associated with law enforcement and reach out to kids to embrace that relationship of trust and safety early on.

Some of the current programs involving Community Awareness include:
Alcohol Server Training
Alcohol and Tobacco Compliance Checks
Bank Robbery Training
Safety Talks
Counter Act
National Night Out
Coffee with a Cop
Seatbelt Safety
Christmas for Kids
And many more!

We also enjoy partnering with local businesses to provide education on various topics, as requested.
