Mission Statement
The Milton Police Department operates under a Council/Manager form of municipal government. Located in the Florida Panhandle, the department has, as its primary mission, the safety and well being of the city's 8,000 full-time residents. The department consists of twenty-two full-time officers, three reserve officers, unpaid volunteer officers and eight civilian staff. In addition to traditional police services, we offer additional assistance with specific requests in a variety of areas, including vacant house watches, neighborhood watch coordination, business checks, and V.I.N. verifications.

The Milton Police Department is dedicated to the philosophy of Community Policing. By forming a partnership with the community to help solve problems of mutual concern, we strive to improve the quality of life for all our citizens.

Crime is not just a police problem, it is a community problem. By establishing and maintaining open communications with our residents, we can address their concerns. The Milton Police Department welcomes citizen input to help solve crime problems and quality of life problems in our community. Our job is SERVICE.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
Q. What can I do about speeding in my neighborhood?
  A. The Milton Police Department invites requests for traffic enforcement, especially in residential areas. Simply call the main telephone number (850) 983-5420 and report the problem. Once a complaint is received, officers are notified and assigned to monitor speeds in the affected area.
Q. When and where can I get a copy of a police report?
  A. The records division is located in the lobby of the police station, at 5451 Alabama Street. You can normally obtain records Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Q. How can I become a police officer?
  A. We accept applications on a continual basis from individuals who hold a valid law enforcement certificate from the State of Florida, or from officers who hold a valid certificate from another state and are eligible to obtain Florida standards within 12 months. Once a need is determined, a written examination is scheduled. Those who pass the written test then must successfully complete a physical agility test, background investigation, oral interview, polygraph or computerized voice stress analysis, psychological assessment, drug screen and medical examination.
Q. I received a traffic citation I do not agree with. What can I do about it?
  A. Once a citation is written, it is forwarded to the court clerk next business day. No one in the police department, including the chief of police, is able to dismiss or withhold prosecution of a ticket. If you disagree with the ticket, you can call the Santa Rosa County Traffic Violations Bureau at (850) 983-1009 and ask for instructions on your options.
Q. My home was broken into and it took an officer 15 minutes to respond. Why so long?
  A. Calls for service are prioritized according to severity. Incidents that have already occurred and that do not have a suspect on the scene receive a non-emergency response. Our response times are very good, but sometimes officers are not available to handle every call the minute it is received. If your call is an emergency, our officers will make every effort to respond in a timely fashion.
Q. I saw a strange car in my neighborhood, but am unsure about calling the police when something like that happens.
  A. The police are here to serve you, but we cannot be everywhere at once. If you suspect anything out of the ordinary, please call.
