Clinton is consistently one of the safest cities in the state of Mississippi. To continue that trend and focus our aim on being Mississippi's safest city, the Police Department has recently expanded the force from 36 sworn officers in 2013 to 60 sworn officers in 2019.
Partnerships between the community and Police Department are powerful examples of how a community can thrive and crime be reduced. Support of the Police Department by Clinton residents remains a powerful tool in encouring law enforcement to build relationships with the community. Clinton is about belonging to a family and the low crime rate is a sign of a caring and engaged family.
Wherever you live, work or play, Clinton is your place to belong and experience peace of mind.
