Responsibilities & Goals
The Murfreesboro Police Department (MPD) is committed to the protection of life and the prevention of crime and disorder in support of our ultimate goal of creating a better quality of life for citizens, visitors, and ourselves. To accomplish this goal, we need the help and support of all members of our community.

As a community-policing department, we are interested in building partnerships with community members in order to improve our ability to solve problems, prevent crime, and improve the quality of our police services.

There is a $50 fee to attend. The fee will not be accepted until after you have been accepted and notified to attend.

Scam Alert

Scams used to defraud unsuspecting, hard working Murfreesboro residents out of their money through a cash-loadable card have increased in recent weeks. Recently, criminals have been calling residents claiming to represent businesses or government agencies and informing them that they were delinquent on a utility bill, missed jury duty, received a civil citation or other similarly framed twist.  The caller instructs the victim to make a quick trip to a local store and purchase a Green Dot MoneyPak, loading it with hundreds of dollars and then providing the scam-artist with the PIN on the back of the card.

The Murfreesboro Police Department recommends never transferring funds through card services before first calling an official telephone number for the government agency or business you are intending on conducting business with.  

We recommend the following when receiving a call from someone demanding money. 
Ask for the caller to send something in writing.  Never give personal information over the phone, businesses you deal with will already have your information.  Contact the Murfreesboro Police Department and report the caller at 893-1311. 

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 the 1st Award of Accreditation from the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police in August 2013.  To accomplish this, the MPD had to prove compliance with 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.

Chief of Police Glenn Chrisman: "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."
