The Madison Police Department is dedicated to protecting and serving our community to the highest standard attainable. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life of every citizen through professional police services.
From the Desk of Chief Jernigan:
The City of Madison is, and continues to be, a great place to live, work, and raise a family. As the city continues to grow, this agency will remain engaged in relationships with our citizens, communities, neighborhoods, and businesses to address crime issues, enhance the quality of life, and reduce the fear of crime throughout the city. As the Chief of Police, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of this agency and the men and women of law enforcement who serve our city on a daily basis. Together we will meet the challenges we may face as a community and, in partnership, overcome them.
In May, 2019 the Madison Police Department was granted level one accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).
As the 10th municipal police agency to achieve this milestone in the state, the police department joins the 5% of the over 18,000 law enforcement agencies in the US to achieve accreditation. CALEA is the gold standard for public safety agencies.
