On behalf of the Owensboro Police Department, I welcome you to our website. I encourage you to take some time to explore our site and read about our current programs and priorities. It is my hope that this site will inform you about Owensboro Police Department services, update you on crime trends, and get you involved and connected to our community policing activities. The Owensboro Police Department exists to serve the community. We do this by protecting life and property, by preventing crime, by enforcing the law, and by maintaining order for all citizens. We consider service to our community to be our primary responsibility. We will always strive to professionally and enthusiastically respond to the community’s needs. Our values are characteristics and qualities of worth. They are nonnegotiable. We hold our values constantly before us to teach and remind us and the community of our ideals. Enjoy your time with us and thank you for your interest in our department.
