Chickasaw Lighthorse Police Department
The mission of the Chickasaw Nation Lighthorse Police Department is to protect the lives and property of the people we serve, reduce the occurrence and fear of crime, preserve peace and provide a safe environment while working in partnership with the Native American and non-Native communities to enhance their quality of life. Our mandate is to do so with honor and integrity, while at all times conducting ourselves with the highest ethical standards to maintain public trust.
The Lighthorse Police Department utilizes the community-oriented policing approach to resolve law enforcement concerns in the community. This philosophy is focused on building partnerships between police officers and citizens. Working together, solutions to concerns are discovered and resolutions are achieved through partnership and cooperation.
Lighthorse officers present information to members of the community on a variety of public safety topics.
Each summer, the Lighthorse Police Department invites youth to explore a career in law enforcement at the Chickasaw Lighthorse Police Academy. This free camp for students, ages 9 to 15, offers positive mentoring and interaction with law enforcement officers while being introduced to teamwork, communication, safety and crime prevention skills.
