The Crawfordsville Police Department (CPD) is comprised of 42 sworn officers, two clerical, a two-member meter department, and five crossing guards. Overseeing the department is the three member Metropolitan Board of Police Commissioners. These are citizens appointed by the mayor. They conduct hiring and implement general personnel policies of the CPD.

The structure of our sworn staff consists of the following: Chief of Police, Assistant Chief of Police, 32 officers assigned to patrol, 6 officers assigned to investigations and 2 officers assigned to the Crawfordsville School Corporation. All sworn officers are required to successfully meet the training requirements specified by the fifteen-week Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. Additionally, our department requires eight months of intense training prior to patrolling independently throughout our community. Officers must complete twenty-four hours of state approved training annually to retain their powers.

As recently as 25 years ago the CPD handled approximately 5,000 service calls annually. In 2020 these service calls neared 20,000. To help offset this demand we are supported by a five member reserve officer program made up of community volunteers. These volunteers assist with various tasks including parades, festivals, athletic events and routine patrols.
