Community Involvement

Successful community policing requires citizen involvement in problem solving; comprehensive accountability fixed at the geographic level and timely interactive communication.

Community policing is a key crime reducing tool. The Campbellsville Police Department provides current and timely reporting of crimes to the citizens. Citizens can view via web link crimereports.com and get up to date information where crimes are occurring. This service also provides email alerts to any crime reported in their neighborhood and also registered sex offenders living in their area. With Crime Reports you can even submit a tip without calling 911.

The Campbellsville Police Department became an accredited agency in 2007. This accomplishment means the Police Department meets or exceeds national standards in all operations of policing. We have partnered with the Appalachia Drug Task force to combat illegal drugs. Illegal drugs continue to be a growing problem. With community support and involvement we can vigorously detect and apprehend the major drug traffickers and dealers of illegal drugs.
