The Caldwell Police Department responds to approximately 15,000 calls each year. Since 2004, the department's dispatch system has been handled by the West Caldwell Police Department.
Caldwell's 19-member department is led by Chief Kurt Dombrowski, who has been with the department for 27 years. The small department also features two lieutenants, one of whom is always on duty, a two-man detective bureau and a one-man traffic division.
During the summer, the department uses eight bicycles to help patrol the streets.
