The Oldham County Police Department employs thirty-two (32) full time sworn officers and three (3) civilian support personnel. The officers have twenty-four hour vehicles, which provide county residents with coverage at all times. This highly trained force provides several special services including the Block Watch Program, House Watch, Traffic Unit, and Bicycle Patrol, Alcohol Beverage Control Enforcement, just to name a few.
The department completed an eighteen (18) month process in March 2001 and became the 50th police agency among 420 law enforcement agencies in Kentucky to receive state accreditation from the Kentucky Law Enforcement Standards Committee on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. Law enforcement accreditation is a progressive and time-proven method of periodic evaluation to improve delivery of law enforcement service by offering a body of standards, developed by law enforcement practitioners, covering a wide range of up-to-date law enforcement topics. To become accredited, an agency must undergo an extensive examination of its policies, procedures and physical layout conducted by a panel of police experts. In April of 2007 the Oldham County Police once again completed the accreditation process meeting all 157 state standards.
