Chief of Police
Welcome to the Ada Police Department’s website, an outreach of the men and women who serve our community with pride. Through this important interactive tool, we hope to establish and build relationships with our customers, the public whom we serve.

The Ada Police Department is comprised of 8 full-time police officers and 3 part-time police officers to serve you 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. We invite you to learn more about your Ada Police Department in the "About Us" section.

You may have noticed that we use the word “customer” when we refer to those we serve. The members of the Ada Police Department understand that the customer mindset is very important for us as we are constantly reminded of the relationship that we must maintain with our residents and those we serve. We believe that even though we are the only agency or “business” that provides safety and security community-wide, we must conduct ourselves in a business (competitive) like and customer-focused manner, for truly this mindset is imperative in developing our quality relationships within our community.

We invite you to browse our website, learn more about what we do, who we are and how to take part in Ada’s safety and security as we all benefit in making Ada a safer community through the cooperative efforts of all of our residents and dedicated police staff.
