Chief's Office

Through partnerships with our community, it is our mission to make Warrensburg a safe community.  Policing in Warrensburg is a unique opportunity with the University of Central Missouri and Whiteman Air Force Base.  The University brings 14,000 students to our community from all over the world, many of them away from home for the first time.  Our partnership with UCM’s Public Safety ensures these students have a safe and enjoyable college experience.  Adding to this uniqueness is the commissioning of the UCM officers as Warrensburg officers.  This dual commission provides an additional resource to keep our community safe.

We've undergone some reorganization to serve our community better.  We added an assistant chief and a night patrol lieutenant.  These new positions create levels of command oversight that will provide supervision and direction to our young department.  Our new organizational structure is located in the WPD statistics tab.

The department continues its mission of connecting with the community.  We are always looking for new faces to join our team and help us keep our community safe.  If you are interested in becoming a police officer, check out the jobs page.
