Welcome! As Chief of Police, I would like to welcome you to the Andalusia Police Department’s official web page. This web page offers you the opportunity of learning more about the hardworking men and women employed by APD.

The men and women of the Andalusia Police Department believe in these core values and our mission and adhere to those at all times. APD serves a population of approximately 9,000 residents. We employ 32 full time sworn police officers and 11 civilian employees. On average, APD responds to 7500 calls for service each year. Calls for service involve sworn and civilian employees at Andalusia Police Department. All sworn officers are APOSTC certified police officers who maintain at a minimum of 12 continuing education credit hours a year. In addition, all personnel attend monthly safety trainings. At APD, we pride ourselves in our community involvement and the generous support that we receive from our residents and business owners. We know and respect the diversity of our community. Our future goals begin with continuing to build a positive relationship between the community and the police department. Since December 2013, I have served as Chief of Police.
