About the Midwest City Police Department 

According to the Midwest Police Department, “the mission of the Midwest City Police Department is to provide law enforcement services, education and leadership through Community Based Policing.”  Additionally, “Midwest City's E.O.C. is located in the basement at the municipal complex on the northwest corner of Reno and Midwest Blvd. We dispatch the Midwest City Police Department and Midwest City Fire Department as well Midwest Regional EMS (which covers emergency ambulance service for Midwest City, Del City, Moore, Choctaw, Harrah, Spencer, Forest Park, Nicoma Park, Luther, Jones and eastern Oklahoma County.

Midwest City was founded in 1942 by W. P. "Bill" Atkinson, a prominent businessman and builder in Oklahoma. The name Midwest City confuses some people because Midwest City is not in the Mid-West. The name actually has its roots with Tinker Air Force Base.   Tinker AFB was once named Midwest Air Depot, so when Midwest City was founded, the name seemed appropriate since those affiliated with the base would be living in the town. (That same name helps to identify why the East and West borders of the "Original Mile" are Midwest Blvd and Air Depot Blvd.). Midwest Air Depot was renamed to Tinker Air Force Base to honor Major General Clarence Tinker, a Native-American from Pawhuska, Oklahoma and the first American general to be killed on a mission in World War II.
