Ketchikan Police Department

Message from the Chief

I want to take this opportunity to share with you what an honor it is to serve as the Chief of Police for the Ketchikan Police Department. This organization is one of the finest law enforcement agencies in the state of Alaska. Welcome to our web site.

The men and women of the Ketchikan Police Department are committed to serving its citizens and its thousands of annual visitors. The officers, dispatchers, and staff who make up the department are dedicated, honest, and fair.

The demands of serving a city in Alaska are many. Weather and geography are challenges we overcome on a daily basis. Fortunately, Ketchikan is a close-knit community. My officers and staff have built a productive working relationship with our citizens.

During the coming months and years, it is our hope to build upon an already excellent police department. Improving communication with our many communities, accreditation, and professionalism are goals each of my officers is working toward. In the end, we are driven to serve those who have trusted us to protect them.

Again, on behalf of the men and women of the Ketchikan Police Department, welcome to our web site. It is designed to serve you. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or suggestions. Thank you.

Chief Edward Talik
