Chief's Message

                                                      Chief Doyne Little



It has been my honor to serve the citizens of Edinburgh starting off as Reserve Officer to Patrolman and working my way up through the ranks. When appointed as Chief of Police in 2019, it was a true blessing to serve as command for a great group of police officers and administrative secretary.

As Police Chief, I will work towards getting our officers back up to speed with the newest technology to be able to prevent and solve crimes. As many know my biggest goal is to rid out the streets from the deadly drugs that have been going around for years. I have coined the term “The Drugs are driving the bus of crime; meaning most of your other crimes like thefts, burglaries etc. are being driven by drug addicts that are trying to get items to trade or sell to get the high they believe that they need to live.

Educating drug users is very important but so is educating the public on why drug addiction has such a strong hold on drug users. If you see drug activity, please call it into my office. If we can take the drug dealers off the streets, we can help the addicts beat the addiction and help make the community a better place.

We have so many great citizens in Edinburgh whom I have never even met after 15+ years of service. It is always a pleasure to hear from our citizens on what we are doing right and what we can improve on. If you have any suggestions or concerns, I am always available by email which is best or just stop by the station. I have pledged to be a working Chief of Police so you will see me out and about as much as possible.

Regardless of whether you are an Edinburgh resident or just visiting our great community to shop, eat or relax we strive to deliver to you the services that will make your experience a safe one.

From Chief Doyne Little, the great police officers and administrative secretary of Edinburgh Police we thank you for your support.
