A Message from the Chief of Police:
Welcome to the Casey Police Department web site. I hope that you will find the information provided helpful and informative.
A community oriented policing philosophy serves as a guiding principle for the department. Our department’s values emphasize the importance of being leaders in the community and building relationships based on trust. This approach encourages citizen involvement, and allows our team to provide quality services that anticipate and respond to the changing needs of our community. We accomplish our objectives through a variety of partnerships with the community and other service providers in Clark County.
I encourage you to browse our site to learn about our department and our community initiatives. Through our programs and community interactions, we learn more about the needs of those we serve, and they in turn understand the challenges we face in policing.

Working together we can make a difference!
Mark T. Jenkins, Chief of Police
Our nation is built on the strength of our citizens. Every day, we encounter situations calling upon us to be the eyes and ears of law enforcement. Not only does neighborhood watch allow citizens to help in the fight against crime, it is also an opportunity for communities to bond through service. The Neighborhood Watch Program draws upon the compassion of average citizens, asking them to lend their neighbors a hand. Neighborhood Watch can be the portal for training to assist law enforcement agencies and bring their communities, technical assistance, resource documents, watch stories, networking, and assistance to the field.
Since 1972, the Neighborhood Watch Program has worked to unite law enforcement agencies, private organizations, and individual citizens in a nation-wide effort to reduce crime and improve local communities. The success of the program has established Neighborhood Watch as the nation’s premier crime prevention and community mobilization program. Visible signs of the program are seen throughout American on street signs, window decals, community block parties and service projects.
Neighborhood Watch empowers citizens to become active in community efforts through participation in Neighborhood Watch groups. The Casey Police Department wishes to extend an opportunity and assistance to any of our residents that are interested in establishing a Neighborhood Watch program in their respective neighborhood.
If this sounds interesting to you, please view this PowerPoint presentation which explains the program and how it works. If you have any questions plese feel free to call the department at 932-2800.
Prescription Drug Disposal
The Casey Police Department has recently installed a Prescription Drug Disposal Box outside the Police Department for citizens to safely dispose of outdated or unwanted prescription medications. It is extremely important to dispose of these medications properly. Some of these reasons include:
Probably the most important of these is the fact that among teens and adults the abuse of prescription medication is a growing problem. The number of drug-related deaths and overdoses in our immediate area has risen over the past few years. The Casey Police Department is always looking for ways to slow down this troubling trend. One of the ways we are attempting this is by placing a Prescription Drug Disposal Box at the rear of Casey City Hall. Residents now can dispose of old or unwanted medication in the prescription medication disposal box for their medications to be safely disposed of, keeping them out of children’s hands, and polluting our water supplies. Day or night, anyone with any unwanted prescription medication (no liquids or syringes) can drop off their medication with no questions asked. The prescription medication disposal box is an environmentally friendly way to dispose of prescription medications and is a great way to keep them out of unwanted hands. With the prescription medication disposal box, the Casey Police Department hopes to save lives with our efforts to keep prescription medication from those who shouldn't have them.
