Welcome from the Chief

As chief of police, it is my honor to serve the citizens of Jacksonville alongside the men and women of this great police department.

We always want you to feel safe. Jacksonville Police Officers are some of the most highly trained, vigilant and dedicated police officers in the business, and they’re here to help. We have a strong team of professionals in our Communications Center who are there 24-7 to answer all emergency and non-emergency police calls and to dispatch first responders immediately.

This site is designed to provide an overview of police personnel and resources used daily to make Jacksonville a safe city in which to live, work and visit. It’s just one of the many tools we use to help educate our community about the comprehensive police services we offer.

The City of Jacksonville is growing, and every member of this department does his or her very best to make sure business owners, residents and visitors are served with a high level of professionalism. 

However, we are in constant pursuit of improvement, and therefore welcome your suggestions. Please feel free to reach out to us here through our website, or by calling us at 256-435-6448 (please dial 911 in an emergency).
