Message from Chief Brian Lyman:

I would like to take this opportunity to express how proud I am to be part of this organization and what a privilege it is to work with the men and women of the Ramsey Police Department. The Ramsey Police Department is committed to providing the very best service possible to our residents and visitors alike. We accomplish this through accountability from our officers and supervisors, as well as, continuous oversight and support from the command staff. We encourage our officers to be problem solvers and to approach all situations with an open mind, an analytical decision-making process and a sense of fairness. We also expect our officers to react with decisiveness and professionalism in order to protect those in need and uphold the rule of law bestowed upon us through our oath of service. We are dedicated to being the officers that are needed in any circumstance, without exception and without fail, and I am honored to represent this department as Chief of Police.
