Phillip D. Reed
Chief of Police
The Pikeville Police Department is considered to be one of the best departments statewide. Pikeville's officers are well-trained, highly motivated men and women. Each officer receives extensive and ongoing training through the Department of Criminal Justice. We provide our officers continuing education certifications in such areas as: Collision Reconstruction, Drug Recognition, Child and Spouse Abuse, and Narcotics Investigation.
Currently, the department has twenty two officers and provides twenty four hour coverage for the citizens of Pikeville. Patrol Division has an average response time of less than seven minutes. Pikeville Police provide a child safety seat inspection station that helps educate the community on the proper usage and importance of child safety seats. Officers assist the Pikeville Independent Schools with the D.A.R.E. program and security for sporting events. We also maintain active status with UNITE PIKE and the AHIDTA programs, organizations which aid in combating this region's drug problem.
In conjunction with the 911 Center, the department offers various training and tours to schools and organizations to help educate the community on services provided, including a portable speed trailer to aid in areas of the city that have been identified with traffic problems.
Pikeville Police Department is always open to the community for comments and suggestions for input to help improve the quality of life in the city.
