Clinton was named the 3rd safest city in the state of Mississippi for the third year in a row in 2021. To continue that trend and reach our goal of being Mississippi's safest city, the Police Department has recently expanded the force from 36 sworn officers in 2013 to 65 sworn officers in 2021.
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.
