Wheatland Police Department Wheatland Police Department
On behalf of the Wheatland Police Department,
I would like to welcome you to our web site. Established as a town in 1905, Wheatland is the Platte County Seat and market center for the area. Western hospitality and friendliness greets native and visitor alike each day. Here, folks wave at each other while driving down the street and it is not uncommon to see neighbors helping neighbors. Wyoming values abound in Wheatland and the rich heritage of western history, farming, and ranching draw many to the area. Good public schools, parks, and close proximity to outdoor recreational opportunities make Wheatland a wonderful place for citizens of every age.
 
The officers of the Wheatland Police Department are proud of the service they provide to those in the community. Relatively low crime rates, case solvability, and safe streets are possible mainly because of the strong support by both the citizens of the town and the commitment by the Town Council towards public safety. The department is exceptionally well trained and equipped. Officers set a high standard for professionalism while working in the community as well as with many other law enforcement agencies.

Strengthening community partnerships is a means to continue building a long-lasting foundation for future generations. As a part of a growing community, the Wheatland Police Department’s mission to provide a safe environment for the citizens of Wheatland is the focus of the important work our officers and support staff do.
 
Thank you for taking the time to view our web site and I sincerely hope you enjoy your virtual tour of the Wheatland Police Department.
 
Sincerely,
 
Randy Chesser
Chief of Police
