History of the Middletown
Police Department

The Middletown Police Department was established on July 2, 2007, with the approval by the Middletown Mayor & Council to move forward with a budget for hiring a police force, starting with a police chief.

The Middletown Police Department began Oct. 31, 2007, with a foundation of 20 officers from various police departments throughout the state of Delaware and surrounding

This diverse workforce worked collectively to provide full police service within 90 days – which is unheard of – with the assistance of the law enforcement community in Delaware.

The Town of Middletown broke ground on a 20,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art police station on March 25, 2008, which had its grand opening on Feb. 28, 2009. The police station is located at 130 Hampden Road.
