Welcome to the Emporia Police Department web site. The Emporia Police Department consists of 45 sworn officers and 24 civilian employees. The department proudly serves a population of approximately 25,000.
Our police department is built on the core values of "Excellence, Pride and Dedication." We operate a patrol division, investigations division, and administrative division. In addition to the basic duties of these departments, we have several specialized areas within the department, including bike patrol officers, a Special Response team and various other specialties.
We place tremendous value on the relationships our officers have built in the communities they serve. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of police services to citizens and visitors to Emporia. We are able to accomplish this through progressive and innovative programs that are implemented by highly trained and motivated men and women within the department. We value a community based approach to law enforcement which is enhanced by partnerships we have with the citizens of Emporia who share our goals and are willing to assist us in maintaining a safe city. We believe these partnerships and the professionalism of our officers and civilian staff members contribute greatly to the safe environment enjoyed by those who live in, work in and visit our great city.
