The city of Goodhue has contracted with the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Department for the 2024 year. The contract will allow six hours daily of coverage for $127,873 annually. This is about $210,000 less than the city would spend operating its own police department on a yearly basis. The city is working on selling off the items formerly used by the police department which are no longer needed. Some equipment can be used by other city departments while the squad cars may be sold to other communities for their law enforcement departments.
