The Golden Valley Police Department (GVPD) provides law enforcement and progressive community service, including patrol, investigation of crimes, prosecution of offenders, and crime prevention. Under the direction of the police chief, the GVPD includes one commander, two lieutenants, six sergeants, 22 police officers, six community service officers, a crime analyst, and 2.75 administrative assistants.
The concept of community policing is a fundamental part of the GVPD. The Crime Prevention Unit has been educating residents and businesses for more than 25 years, and the drug education program CounterAct (a product of collaboration between Golden Valley and the Hazelden Foundation) has been taught in all the Golden Valley elementary schools for more than10 years. The department also sponsors an annual safety education classes through GVPD University, an active Police Reserve Program, and many other community-based activities.

The GVPD is involved in many multi-jurisdictional enterprises, including the six-city Northwest Metro Drug Task Force and a three-city Emergency Response Team.
