The Walkerton Police Department patrols the 1.7 square mile city limits, protecting over 800 homes; there are 63 named streets.
Before taking a vacation, residents are encouraged to visit the police station to fill out a house watch form. We can check up on your house for suspicious activity while you are away, and contact you if there is any problem.
Business owners should also stop by the station to make sure we have an up-to-date emergency contact list for your business.
Emergency 9-1-1 service is available in Walkerton, but the calls are first answered by the St. Joseph County Police dispatchers, then transferred back to Walkerton. Although this process only takes a few extra seconds, the best way to report something to the Walkerton Police Department is at 586-3511. If you are unable to speak or cannot remember the 7-digit number in an emergency, we still encourage you to call 9-1-1.
