Police Department

I am Chief Dan Rary and I would like to welcome you to the City of Vestavia Hills Police Department’s web page. I have the privilege of leading the dedicated men and women of this department. Our department is striving to be one of the most progressive in the area.

We serve a population of more than 34,000 residents, with 85 sworn officers and 3 civilian employees. The Department is organized into task specific units to provide the best service to our citizens. These units are Patrol, Investigators, Narcotics, Community Oriented Policing, Traffic, Professional Standards and Resource Management.

The Department has a paramilitary command structure with a Chief of Police, Captains, Lieutenants, Sergeants, Corporals and Officers.

We depend on a positive relationship between the community and the police department for our success.  Vestavia Hills is a wonderful community to raise your family, work or operate/start a business. I hope that you enjoy our web site as well as our Facebook page and that you come back often to see what is new. If you have any questions or comments we encourage you to reach out to us.
