Police Department

The Northwood Police Department entered into a 28E agreement with the Worth County Sheriff Department and it serves the community by protecting citizens and property, preventing crime, enforcing laws, and maintaining order. Our Department's main goal is to contribute to the quality of life in the City and County.

The City Department is comprised of 4 sworn police officers that cover the residential and commercial areas of our City.


The main goal is to create and maintain a safe, secure environment for all Northwood citizens. We strive to accomplish this goal through proactive community programs designed to prevent crime and through efficient, thorough investigations of crimes that have been committed.
