We would like to welcome you to the official website of the Shelby Police Department.  Our department is built around one basic principal that we believe is the cornerstone of our mission; service.  The men and women that make up the Shelby Police Department work diligently to provide both residents and visitors with the highest level of customer service possible.

With the help of citizens, other city departments and outside law enforcement agencies, the City of Shelby has seen a steady decrease in our crime rate and an overall improvement in the quality of life within our neighborhoods.  As we move forward, we encourage our citizens to become involved in the many projects that are underway to help make Shelby a more attractive community. Information on many of the programs we currently have in place are listed on our website.

I encourage you to browse through our website and learn more about the outstanding group of officers and civilians that make up the Shelby Police Department, as well as some of the initiatives we currently have in place.   

We are glad you stopped by to visit our website and hope you will find it both educational and informative.
