"The biggest challenge I face is getting the community to understand that we're here for them -- not out to get them. We are public servants, responsible for their safety." - Bryan Morrison, Chief of Police
Mayfield Police Department is composed of 24 sworn police officers,
each of whom has been certified through the Department of Criminal
Justice Training at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond,
Kentucky. Officers spend eighteen weeks completing training in
areas such as firearms, physical fitness, patrol tactics, defensive
driving, ethics, and Kentucky Revised Statutes.
the department are special forces that, in addition to their regular
patrol duties, are committed to Investigations, vicious animal
compliance, and a specialized drug task force.
additional officers make up the canine forces of the Mayfield Police
Department; Patton, an 11-year old Belgian Malinois; Gabriel, a
7-year old Belgian Malinois, and Gunner, a two-year old Labrador
Retriever. These three canine units give the Mayfield Police
Department the added weapons they need in the fight against drugs
within the City of Mayfield. With a drug dog on each shift, the
immediate accessibility of the canines has led to a record increase in
arrest rates in the area of drug crimes within the City of Mayfield.
The Mayfield Police Department has a total of eighteen cruisers, a Crime Scene Unit, and Bike Patrol.
The Mayfield Police Department provides the following special programs:
Safety – The officers of the Mayfield Police Department make routine
visits to each of the city schools in order to have a presence there,
and to acquaint themselves with the school children and staff.
– Drug Awareness Resistance and Education – presented each year to
students at Mayfield Elementary. Program includes a graduation
ceremony for kids who complete the entire series.
Safety/No Texting Program – Officers assemble randomly at entrances and
exits to high school, giving out awards to those wearing seatbelts, and
“Dum-Dum Suckers” to those texting or not wearing seatbelts.
Out – A serious reminder about the dangers of drinking and
driving. Each year near Halloween, an officer very seriously
plays the role of the Grim Reaper and seeks his prey among the high
school students. The program ends with a life-changing assembly,
and a wrecked vehicle is displayed at the school’s entrance.
Ribbon Week – Officers participate in a variety of programs and efforts
to make kids understand the dangers of drug use, and the benefits of
saying “no” to drugs.
Watch – Neighborhoods learn methods of crime detection to assist the
police department in efforts to keep neighborhoods safe.
Police Academy – Newly-administrated program to educate citizens on a
comprehensive battery of law enforcement tactics. Stay tuned for more
