About Us

MCPD Shield

Since 1879, the Michigan City Police Department has proudly and faithfully served the citizens of Michigan City with integrity, dedication and professionalism. 

The mission of the MCPD is for every member of our Department to consistently seek and find ways to affirmatively promote, preserve and deliver a feeling of security, safety and quality service to the members of our community. 

Under the leadership of Chief of Police Mark Swistek, our Department strives to engage the public in a courteous, efficient and accessible manner that facilitates dialogue and a sense of partnership in the implementation of "Community Policing Strategies" that represent, support and protect all citizens and visitors to our great city. 

We invite you to join our efforts to embrace the opportunities ahead and help us to build a stronger, safer and more engaged partnership between the MCPD and the community that we so proudly served.
