Clarksville Police Department website

Clarksville's Police Department is composed of 34 full-time officers, including a chief and assistant chief. These officers are assisted by 15 reserves, unpaid volunteers who must work a specified number of hours per month and participate in training programs. The capacity of the department is also extended by five members of the safety patrol. The safety patrol hands out parking tickets and takes routine accident and incident reports. The officers are also supported by seven dispatchers and four clerical workers.

The reserves and safety patrol help augment a police department serving a community that stretches seven miles from the Ohio River north. The presence of two large malls along the commercial strip of State Road 131 adds to the work load of Clarksville's Police Department.

Clarksville's Police Department is involved in the community through sponsorship of youth sports and the Shop with a Cop program, which pairs an officer with a child for a special shopping trip at Christmas. The drug prevention program, DARE, is provided to the elementary schools in Clarksville through our Police Department.

Senior citizens in Clarksville can register for the RUOK program, which sets up a daily phone call to make sure there are no problems. Also, residents who will be out of town for extended periods can have regular patrols past their homes through the vacation watch service.

The Clarksville Police Department is a professional force that encourages officers to continually upgrade their skills.
