Police Department


We strive for no less than excellence in all we do.

  • For every person, protection and service
  • For every circumstance, fairness, respect, and understanding
  • For every accomplishment, gratitude and opportunity
  • For every endeavor, teamwork, and professionalism
  • For every day, integrity, efficiency, and the Golden Rule (akm - 1996)


The Fountain Inn Police Department consist of 26 sworn/certified officers, 7 Communication Specialists and 2  Administrative Staff. We are fortunate to have volunteers in policing (VIP's). The men and women who proudly serve this community are well trained and committed to excellence. We are continuously seeking ways to improve the service(s) we provide.

During 2010 we established and trained a 7 member Citizen's review Committee (CRC). This committee's creation was partially in response to a perception that officers were targeting certain groups of residents unfairly. In our pursuit of not only excellence but transparency, we were eager to possess a forum to demonstrate this perception as incorrect. The CRC's function was originally to review all complaints made against employees, but their duties were expanded to include their review of "Use of Force" incidents as well.
