On behalf of the entire staff of the Milbank Police Department, I would like to welcome you to the Milbank area and tell you a little about our department.

The Milbank Police Department is dedicated to the community.  The department consists of six full-time sworn Police Officers and three part-time Officers.  The Milbank PD also has a dedicated reserve officer program that currently has eight officers.

The Milbank Police Department provides 24-hour coverage for the City of Milbank.  Our Department is proud of the fact that we work closely with other agencies including the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, the SD Highway Patrol and the SD Division of Criminal Investigation.  We feel the community is better served if all agencies work together.

The Milbank Police Department is here to serve you.  One of our mottos is “To Protect and Serve”, so please don’t hesitate to call us if you need assistance.  You can always reach us at 605-432-5650.  Remember to dial “911” for emergencies.

Milbank is a great place to live, to work, and to raise a family.  The City of Milbank continues to expand and grow.  The Milbank Police Department is committed to working together to make this community the best it can be.  The staff and I pledge to do our jobs to the best of our abilities.
