The principal mission of the North Ogden Police Department is to preserve the rights of our residents and to protect the citizens through the prevention and detection of crime.

In North Ogden, we lose an average of four residents a year to suicide. In 2017, we lost six residents. Each one of these deaths represents a person who is loved by family, friends, and neighbors. Each one of these people had a future, and we are all diminished by their passing.
Knowing the danger signs of suicide, how to respond to them, and what resources are available is one of the greatest advantages we have in interdicting suicides.

Safety Tips for Drivers
- Slow down and use caution in residential areas, around schools, playgrounds, parks, or other areas where children and pedestrians are common.
- If a vehicle has stopped at a crosswalk (either marked or unmarked), all vehicles must also stop to allow a pedestrian to cross.
- Drivers must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians crossing at intersections (a crosswalk exists at every intersection regardless of whether or not it is painted) or in any other marked crosswalk.
- When exiting a parking lot or driveway, stop before the sidewalk and yield the right-of-way to any pedestrians on the sidewalk before crossing over the sidewalk.
- Vehicles making a left or right turn on a green light must yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian in a marked or unmarked crosswalk within the intersection.
- When turning right on a red light, come to a complete stop and look to the right for pedestrians crossing the street in front of your vehicle.
- Vehicles must stop at the “stop line” in front of a crosswalk, and not in the crosswalk.
Safety Tips for Pedestrians
- Always look left-right-left before crossing any street and continue to look for vehicles as you cross.
- Do not stand in the street while waiting to cross.
- Just because you are using a crosswalk, does not mean that a driver will see or even stop for you.
- When crossing at a marked crosswalk, push the pedestrian signal button. It will give you more time before the traffic light turns green.
- If a sidewalk exists, use it. If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic along the shoulder of the roadway.
- If crossing a road with several lanes and a vehicle in the closest lane has stopped to allow you to cross, make sure vehicles in other lanes see you and stop for you as well before proceeding.
- Look out for vehicles entering or exiting a parking lot or driveway.
- Dress to be seen. Brightly colored clothing may make you a little more visible to drivers during daylight hours, but during nighttime hours, bright and even white clothing does little to enhance your visibility to drivers. Instead, wear reflective clothing and carry a flashlight.
