The department is a family focused, community-oriented, full-service law enforcement agency consisting of 29 commissioned officers and staff.

Officers work collaboratively and in partnership with a supportive and police-friendly community.

Battle Ground is located in the heart of Clark County, Wash., five miles east of I-5 and just 30 minutes north of Portland, Ore., and the Portland International Airport. The community benefits from serene and pristine surroundings with many local parks, lakes, streams and forested areas while enjoying close proximity to the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area. The nearby Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Hood and Washington and Oregon coasts provide unmatched recreational opportunities.
