LEITCHFIELD POLICE DEPARTMENT
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
