"Our mission at the Selmer Police Department is to insure the safety and well-being of all people in the city of Selmer by leading a cooperative effort with the public to insure a safe and secure place for citizens to live."

We maintain compliance with the Tennessee Police officer Standards of Training  Commission  and certify our officers in either the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy, Cleveland State Police Academy or Walter State Police Academy.   Our officers receive specialized training yearly in a variety of fields from narcotics detection and enforcement to computer forensics and related crimes, and carry specialized certifications in those fields.   The Selmer Police Department Narcotics Unit is in special cooperation with the McNairy County Sheriff’s office, and along with their Investigators, enforce narcotics cases county wide. 

Please feel free to contact us so together we can make our community a safer, better place to live together.
