Police & Fire

Public Safety is a priority for every department of the City of Bartlesville. Two of the primary agencies involved in Public Safety are the Police and Fire departments.

The Police Department is responsible for crime prevention, investigation of criminal activities, traffic enforcement, animal control, safety education and the operation of the county wide 911 system for all emergency services.

The Fire Department is responsible for fire prevention and education, fire suppression, fire code inspections, arson investigation, emergency medical response and hazardous material incidents.
