Our Mission

A Message from Chief Brown

The Paris Police Department is committed to building relationships with community members while providing the highest service level to keep our citizens safe. As the Chief of Police, I will continue to provide and share our on-going efforts with the community to maintain and build public trust.
We emphasize community policing at the heart of our organization and every level. Our community partnerships are established through our officers’ daily efforts and support staff to maintain the confidence of those we serve. Top priorities for the Paris Police Department members are to foster relationships through dignity and respect, mentor young people, and solve neighborhood problems.
Policing in the 21st century has dramatically changed, and the movement towards technology and better police practices has increased throughout the country. The Paris Police Department is dedicated to reaching the highest standards of professionalism through policies, procedures, and training.
Lastly, I am excited about the future of the Paris Police Department and dedicated to our unwavering promise to keep our community safe while maintaining our citizens’ trust.
