Message From the Chief

On behalf of all the members of the West Memphis Police Department, I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our web site.

The number one priority of the men and women who make up your police department is service to the citizens and visitors of our community. Our service is our greatest product offered and we strive every day to make that product the best available anywhere. Each officer and civilian employee is committed to making our community the best place to live, work, and enjoy. We will accomplish this by partnering with our community to provide that service, aid, and protection while aggressively investigating and curtailing crime.

I have been a lifelong resident of the City of West Memphis, and as the Chief of Police, I personally strive to present the West Memphis Police Department as a model of professionalism and accountability to the citizens and guests of West Memphis.
