The New Castle Police Department has moved into their new location at 801 West Main Street. The new facility is located in the lower or garden level of the Public Works Building, directly across the street from Elk Creek Elementary. The entry and parking area is on the east side of the building.

The Police Department’s phone number is (970) 984-2302. For Emergencies, dial 911. For Dispatch, call (970) 625-8095.
