The City of Otsego receives law enforcement services through a contractual agreement with the Wright County Sheriff's Office. Otsego has been contracting with the Sheriff's Office predating the City's incorporation in 1990.
This relationship allows the City to receive a high level of protection in the most cost-effective manner. Further, the City is afforded access to the extensive resources and relationships available through the Sheriff's Office.
The City and the Sheriff's Office have a great working relationship and are routinely reviewing levels of service within the City. The Sheriff's Office currently provides fifty (50) hours of service daily within the City. This level of service is provided by numerous different deputies, each of whom is assigned to the City for their regular shifts. This approach allows each of the deputies to become familiar with the community and any local issues that require dedicated attention.
