The City of Crawfordsville, Indiana

Small City... Big Possibilities

Police Department

The Crawfordsville Police Department (CPD) is comprised of forty one 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 who 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, twenty nine uniformed patrol division officers, and five criminal investigators. 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 2005 these service call figures exceeded 23,000. To help offset this demand we are supported by a fifteen member reserve officer program made up of community volunteers. These volunteers assist with various tasks including parades, festivals, athletic events and routine patrols.
