The Easton Police Department was formed in 1887 by the newly incorporated City of Easton and consisted of a chief, lieutenant, sergeant, and seven night patrolmen, with an annual budget of $8,000.  The city now covers approximately 4 square miles and serves approximately 26,000 people with an average 25,000 calls for service each year, and an annual budget of $3.5 million.  The great-grandson of Issac Leauber, one of the original  1887 officers, is currently an Easton Police Officer.

Currently we have 62 officers and our department includes a Patrol Unit, Detective Division, Vice Division, K-9, SWAT, EOD, and Accident Investigation Units. And a Neighborhood Policing Division which includes Crime Prevention, DARE, Motorcycle and  Bicycle patrols, a Traffic Officer, and neighborhood foot patrol officers who deal with "Quality of Life" issues in the City of Easton.

Our patch, the result of a design contest held in 1990, resembles our police badge and is unique in the fact that it contains eight (8) separate colors.
