Police: 24- Hour Police Protection
The Police Chief, James Adkins, commands a professional and courteous staff of twenty-two sworn Officers and two full time Detectives providing coverage for the City of Pikeville. The Pikeville Police Department is located at 101 Division Street, Pikeville, KY 41501. The goal for the Pikeville P.D. is to provide citizens with information and help educate our community on how we make the city safer and reduce the fear of crime. The Department provides coverage for citizens with an average response time between five and seven minutes.
The Detective Division handles criminal, narcotic and abuse cases. We provide many community-focused projects, such as child seat inspection stations to help educate the community on the importance of child care safety. Pikeville Police Department provides a Neighborhood Watch Program and other security services for those within City Limits.
We partner with other agencies in joint ventures, such as the AHIDTA (Appalachian High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area) and UNITEPIKE Coalition to help ensure the safety to our residents.
