Welcome to our modern facility located at 613 Walnut Street in Chillicothe, Missouri...

Chillicothe police officers are some of the best trained officers in this part of the state and with our affiliation at a number of training outlets, our officers are consistently updating their skills and knowledge in this ever changing environment.

Police Officers and police department employees are expected to protect and to serve the public as part of their duty; but, sometimes, an officer or dispatcher may go that "extra mile." A thank you is always appreciated, but you may not feel that is enough to show your appreciation. If you think an officer or department employee merits special recognition, please email us at Likewise, if you have a complaint or concern you wish to discuss with our department, we would also like to hear from you.
