The Battle Ground Police Department’s Administration consists of Police Chief Bob Richardson, one Lieutenant and one Administrative Assistant. The Administration’s function is to support all department operations by managing budget and fiscal matters, department training, fleet and facilities, police records, property and evidence, and human resources.
Battle Ground Police Department Detectives investigate all major crimes against persons and property such as sexual assault, forgery, cyber-crimes, crimes against vulnerable adults and fraud. Detectives receive a wide range of specialized training and are members of the Clark County Regional Major Crimes Task Force.
Officers provide 24 hour service, 7 days a week to the Battle Ground community by responding to calls for service, enforcing traffic laws, and patrolling neighborhoods or trouble spots. In addition to uniform patrol, specialty positions include a K-9 Unit, Traffic Motorcycle Unit, a School Resource Officer, and assignments to the Southwest Regional SWAT team.
The records staff plays a major role in keeping our department operating. They greet citizens and provide information, make referrals to the appropriate resource, provide statistical data and perform complex recordkeeping functions using automated systems. The Records Unit can be contacted Monday through Friday, from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, by calling (360) 342-5200.
Clark Regional Services Emergency Agency (CRESA) provides the link between the community and police services by providing 9-1-1 dispatch services to the citizens of Clark County. For more information visit their
