We at the Estherville Police Department take pride in our department and community. We are active in the community, both socially and through the department, participating in school programs and community events. Many of our officers have children in the school system, and several officers are members of our community service groups.

We maintain a high level of proficiency by taking advantage of opportunities for continuing education. Faced with the constantly changing landscape of law enforcement, our officers attend special schools throughout the year. Many Estherville police officers are certified law enforcement instructors. These instructorships include pursuit driving, firearms, A.S.P. (expandable baton), defensive tactics, standardized field sobriety tests, Stop Stick tire deflation devices, Pursuit Intervention Tactic, D.A.R.E., and chemical munitions. Many of our officers are specialists in fields such as hostage negotiations, accident investigation, and youth gangs.
