EJS (Ellsworth, Jewell, Stanhope) Police Department
The police department currently has two officers:
Both Chief Butler and Officer Feld are certified EMT-'s and work closely with all three ambulance services that cover the cities of Ellsworth, Jewell, and Stanhope. 

The department offers the DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program to the South Hamilton Community School and the department also actively participates in SALT (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) as part of a community policing program. 

The department is always looking for ways to improve interactions within the communities and are always willing to talk to any community group.
