About Us

Office / Records




The  Leitchfield Police Department has seen and has been a part of the  ever-changing profession of law enforcement over the last ten years.   All officers of the department are required to be certified and this is  accomplished by completing twenty (20) weeks of training  through the  Department of Criminal Justice Training located in Richmond, Kentucky.   In addition to the twenty (20) weeks, every officer is required to  complete forty (40) hours of in-service training annually.  Several  different areas of study are available for these classes.

Officers  are also involved in different community and school functions.  We  offer safety, drug, security and crime watch programs.  We assist with  different charitable organizations in providing for the needy children  of our community.

Officers  of the Leitchfield Police Department are entrusted with the duties to  protect and serve the citizens of this community as well as enforcing  the laws of the Commonwealth and those ordinances enacted by the City of  Leitchfield.

Officers are very community oriented and strive to make Leitchfield a safe community in which to live and raise their families.

The Leitchfield Police Department consists of nineteen (19) sworn officers  and one (1) secretary. Two (2) of the nineteen are School Resource Officers. We currently have one (1) Detective and one (1) drug task force Detective.  In 2022, the Leitchfield Police Department  was awarded accreditation for a fourth time through the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police
