Online Police Reports
The Murfreesboro Police Department will commence an online incident reporting system October 1, 2013. The online report system is a new process of receiving and reporting specified non-emergency incidents over the internet.  The program is intended to enhance the level of emergency police services available to the community by reporting certain types of calls online while at the same time increasing convenience for residents. 

A Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation Program Agency
The Murfreesboro Police Department received 2nd Award of Accreditation in July 2016 and the 1st Award in 2013.  To accomplish this, the MPD had to prove and maintain compliance with over 160 standards established by the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police, Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission.  These standards are designed to ensure agencies provide quality police services to the community as well as reduce liability for the department and officers.

TLEA Accreditation is a symbol of law enforcement excellence and of our ongoing commitment to create a better quality of life for citizens and visitors by providing outstanding public safety services for the City of Murfreesboro.
