Despite the challenges of being short handed, the Wolf Point Police Department continues its mission to keep law and order in the community.
The department features five officers and an administrative assistant.
Chief of Police Alisha Morales says the department is short two patrol officers and an animal control officer.
“We don’t have any wiggle room,” Morales said of the amount of officers.
Recently, officer Ronaldo Chavez graduated from the Montana Law Enforcement Academy.
Morales said there are many benefits of being an law enforcement officer including helping people and the community. The majority of the officers are natives to Wolf Point and are giving back to their hometown.
Having quality first responders is very important and it’s great to have people in the community who care for other residents.
Gaining more employees is one of the goals of the Wolf Point Police Department during the next year. Officials encourage interested individuals to come to the police office to visit about the opportunities of a career in law enforcement.
“We want to continue to serve our community to the best of our ability,”Morales said.
Ronaldo Chavez recently graduated from the Montana Law Enforcement Academy. He has served as an officer for the Wolf Point Police Department since January 2022.
