Jeff Sherrard is Chief of the Prospect Police Department, which is made up of nine full-time professional police officers and a Administrative Assistant.
The department's primary mission is to build a safe community by providing trained professionals to promote crime prevention, and to effectively conduct proactive law enforcement through community involvement. Officers are committed to the philosophical elements of Community Policing. Through our response to community concerns and the development of positive relationships throughout the community, we strive to impact the quality of life issues that make the City of Prospect a great community in which to live, visit, and work. Officers patrol the entire city and their response time to any call for assistance is usually never more than 2-3 minutes.
For many citizens their only interaction with the Prospect Police Department may be during a routine traffic stop or during an investigation. In addition to our standard law enforcement duties the Prospect Police Department provides several programs to help educate and enlighten the citizenry of Prospect.
The Department's House Watch program is very successful. Click on the link and request a House Watch by completing the on-line form. Officers will keep close tabs on the house while residents are away and will take action should unauthorized vehicles or persons be near the house. For more information about this program and the ones listed below, please call 228-1150.
Crime Prevention is EVERYONE'S responsibility. As part of the community, the police department plays an important role in keeping the community safe. However, the police can't be everywhere, all the time. The success of our crime prevention/community service programs depends on you, for only with your active participation can these programs be effective.
