Welcome From the Chief of Police

Message From The Chief

It is my pleasure to welcome you the to the Andover Police Department Online, where you can find out what the Andover Police Department is doing to make this community a better place to live!

The City of Andover is a rapidly growing, contemporary community, with excellent schools, located adjacent to Wichita; it is “small town” living at its finest, with many of the “big city” amenities. The Andover Police Department, a 35-member department, including 26 sworn officers, has a state-of-the-art facility and an E-911 Emergency Communications Center. The Police Department has also been nationally accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) since March of 2013. Our staff all have a compassionate community commitment and high integrity standards, which is demonstrated every single day.

At the Andover Police Department our mission is to improve the quality of life and property, maintaining order, and reducing crime through education, awareness and prevention. To us, providing Police services is a lot more than just writing a ticket or taking a report; it means working with the community to prevent crime and solve community problems. The cooperative working relationship between police department staff and the people we serve is improving every day, and citizen confidence in the Police Department is the highest it has ever been.

In cooperation with the citizens, the men and women of the Andover Police are committed to the Department's motto:

"Public Service Excellence: through Compassion, Integrity, and Commitment"

Please take a few minutes to learn more about the APDs programs and services. You will find that our members are a dedicated, well-trained, and an enthusiastic group of professionals who take pride in their work. They are ready to work with you to make your home, your workplace, and this community an even better place to live!
