Police Department Policy Manual
The Mountlake Terrace Police Department Policy Manual is the product of our effort and collaboration with Lexipol, which is a nationally recognized firm, that provides public safety policies. As part of Lexipol’s program, we regularly refresh our knowledge of these policies through updates and answering questions when we log on to computers as we begin our shifts.

These policies are continually reviewed to reflect all legal updates and best practices throughout the law enforcement profession.
