Hamilton Police Department


Every day across the country, from our largest cities to our quietest crossroads, peace officers stand watch over our citizens, selflessly risking their lives to protect individuals, families, neighborhoods, and property against crime.

Each year we salute these men and women for their courage, commitment, and service. We take the opportunity to honor those who have fallen in the line of duty.

In 1962 Congress authorized and requested the President designate May 15 of each year as “Peace Officer’s Memorial Day” and that week as “Police Week”.

The Hamilton Police Department is honored to host the 2014 Montana Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony. The ceremony will take place at the Hamilton High School Performing Arts Center after a parade through the downtown area. Start times will be posted as soon as they are set. The public is invited to attend both the parade and ceremony. If you have any questions, please contact Lt. Steve Snavely at the Hamilton Police Department, 406-363-2100. Thank you for your support.
