The 145 American flags that surround our police station represent the 145 law enforcement officers in the United States who died while working in 2016.

A Word from the Chief

Take a moment and click here to get to know more about our department and Chief Gregory Bean.

The overall philosophy of the Southwestern Regional Police Department is to provide the most professional police services possible in a fiscally responsible manner. We will achieve this by being innovative and progressive in our approach to solving problems. All employees will be tasked with this responsibility and be given the authority and the tools to accomplish these tasks.

We will not forget that the input of the residents' concerns and desires will guide this department. Being open to new ideas, being responsive to those ideas, and always looking to improve, is ultimately important. By working with residents, business owners, and all others involved in the criminal justice process, our goals are to reduce crime, disorder and to provide a safe community in which to live, work, and play.

“Continuous Improvement is What We Do.”
