Chief's Message

Cheif Mike Ashment

The Ogden Police Department is a department rich with history, tradition and service to our community. We are the county seat of a larger community known as Weber County, Utah. The Ogden Police Department has been providing law enforcement services to this community since 1855.

Although we still provide basic services much the same way as we always have, the changes in the development of technology over the years has increased our department's capability to provide the most up to date and professional work by the most dedicated employees any organization would be proud to employ. Technology, like the computer you are using to view this message, has dramatically increased our ability to provide you, our customers, with the information you desire.

The Ogden Police Department is a Community Policing based department of 140 sworn police officers supported by a civilian work force of 80 non-sworn and volunteer professionals. The community of Ogden covers approximately 26.6 square miles and sits at the base of Mount Ogden Peak, a site of the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Our department is a diversified and proactive department made up of a number of different specialty areas and bureaus. Hopefully you will take some time to visit some of the areas in our department via this web site. Thanks for your interest in reviewing this web page and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.


Mike Ashment, Chief of Police
