Welcome to the Alcoa Police Department

I would like to welcome you to the Alcoa Police Departments official website.

 We are pleased and proud to acquaint you with our department, our team of dedicated police professionals and the many services the department provides.  At APD, success is achieved through sustained community policing partnerships and by an unwavering tradition of service.  We measure our success not by the many tasks we perform or the infrequency of crime in our community, but rather by the feelings of safety and security that our residents, businesses and visitors share.

 I am confident that as you browse through the information that accompanies this message, you will quickly understand our great pride in the City of Alcoa and the many dedicated men and women of the department who protect and serve.  It is from their commitment, professionalism and teamwork today that we build for tomorrow.

As always, we welcome and invite your questions, concerns or suggestions for improved police services.  Please let you know how we're doing.  If you have any questions concerning the Alcoa Police Department, please feel free to contact me by e-mail at ppotter@cityofalcoa-tn.gov or by phone at 865-981-4111.
