One of Anchorage’s greatest assets is having its own exceptional police force. The Anchorage Police Department serves and vigilantly protects the community and works in partnership with residents in crime prevention. 

A six-time Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police accredited agency, it is one of only three police departments in the state to achieve this status. The department has 10 veteran officers with more than 250 years of combined police experience from various police departments across the state. The department also serves as a 911 dispatch center.

Anchorage’s officers are visible and valued members of the community who are known by, and know, many residents by name. They are often greeted with waves from passing cars, honored with blue ribbons on mailboxes, and sometimes thanked with treats delivered to the police department.

Anchorage police and residents alike take great pride in their partnership that preserves the safety, security, and quality of life in our community.

H. Dean Hayes,
Chief of Police

Chief Hayes was appointed to the Anchorage Police Department on Nov. 17, 2014.
