"On behalf of our community, welcome to our website. The men and women of the Paducah Police Department are what make this organization one of the most respected law enforcement agencies in the world, and they are here to serve you. We strive to provide excellent police service each and every day. Whether you are raising a family here or simply visiting, we want your experience to be safe, fun, and memorable.

Building upon our past successes with community policing, the Paducah Police Department is committed to a geographic-policing philosophy that addresses crime and the fear of crime through a shared relationship between citizens and officers in their specific neighborhoods. This is proactively achieved using proven problem-solving methods and partnerships to elevate the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

We invite you to become involved with your department in order to continue forging a strong cooperative partnership that is built upon mutual trust and respect. No police department can solve crime or quality of life issues. Effective community/police relationships, communication, and engagement are critical components to our success.

Please take the time to learn more about the PPD's divisions and services. Take advantage of the many opportunities to communicate with us and learn how we can work together. We look forward to working with you. There are many opportunities for you to partner with us to make Paducah its best."
