Substance Abuse Task Force
Police Chief Maverick Campbell Sr., City Administrator Scott Moore, and Council Member Holly Fries comprise the Ellsworth Substance Abuse Task Force. The task force meets every quarter to discuss substance abuse in the community and evaluate ideas aimed at reducing drug use in our community.
Safe Exchange Zone
The Ellsworth Police Department Safe Exchange Zone is located at 207 N. Kansas Ave. in front of the police department. There are two designated parking spaces to utilize for e-commerce transactions-exchanges from classified websites such as Craigslist, Buy-Sell-Trade and Facebook. The Safe Exchange Zone can also be used for child custody exchanges. This provides a safer location to make these exchanges.
