Welcome from Chief Tarik Khatib

Dear Citizen,

Welcome to the City of Lawrence, Kansas Police Department website.  This new site was designed to give you the best access possible to important information about crime and police services in the City of Lawrence.  It's also important for us to share with you a little about who we are and some of the activities we engage in within the local community.

We have created many new features to give you faster, easier and more "user friendly" information - information you need to know about your community and what the Police Department is doing to make Lawrence safe.  This site features links to give you the best possible access to important and timely information about crime in our community, the police community, the police services available to you and how to contact us when you have questions, concerns or the need for police assistance.

We have also designed our website hoping you will return frequently to see new features and stories, updated public relations and media releases about high profile incidents.  We pledge to keep you informed about your community and to provide you with current information about us, our service and mission, and how together we can keep Lawrence a safe place to call home. 

We anticipate continually adding and improving to this site, increasing the amount of information available to you, and in a format that is convenient.  We also encourage you to also visit our Facebook page under the title lawrencepolice.  Please be safe and we look forward to your feedback.


Tarik Khatib, Chief of Police
