From the Chief
On behalf of the men and women of the Parsons Police Department, I would like to personally welcome you to our website. It is the vision of our department to "Setting the Standard for Excellence".
Our agency is in the process of evaluating our processes and procedures as part of an overall project to benchmark our operations against other peer law enforcement agencies. This is part of a strategic planning process that we are kicking off this Fall of 2018. We want to enhance our “working in partnership to protect and serve the community with professionalism, pride, and dedication.” Through cooperative efforts, the police department and our community share the responsibility for crime control and public safety. We want to improve that partnership on all levels.
The Parsons Police Department works hard to provide a high level of community safety and public service. We have a high level of success in bringing violators and felons to justice, but we want to improve the community’s ability to identify and eliminate root causes of crime in our city.
Consequently, we will be building a more active Community Policing and Problem Solving (COPPS) plan this Fall. Our goal is to use the most effective, up-to-date tools and training methods to partner with our citizens to enhance the livability in Parsons.
It is my privilege to lead the Parsons Police Department.
Robert Spinks, MA, MS
Chief of Police
