The Fountain Inn Police Department consist of 24 sworn/certified officers, 8 Communication Specialists and Administrative Staff. We are fortunate to have volunteers in policing (VIP's) and 2 Reserve Officers. The men and women who proudly serve this community are well trained and committed to excellence. We are continuously seeking ways to improve the service(s) we provide.
During 2010 we established and trained a 7 member Citizen's review Committee (CRC). This committee's creation was partially in response to a perception that officers were targeting certain groups of residents unfairly. In our pursuit of not only excellence but transparency, we were eager to possess a forum to demonstrate this perception as incorrect. The CRC's function was originally to review all complaints made against employees, but their duties were expanded to include their review of "Use of Force" incidents as well.
We offer a number of programs to the community free of charge. They include Citizen's Police Academy, Summer Camps for "At Risk" Children, Neighborhood Watch Programs, C.O.D.E., and Senior Watch. Not only are we able to offer these programs free, but also the monies used to pay for these valuable assets are the result of fund raising efforts and not tax dollars. We are proud that our programs have served as models for other Police Departments in SC and other States as well.

April is Autism awareness month! With that in mind, we want to remind everyone with a special needs family member to sign up for the S.A.F.E. program. All information provided by the family or guardian will not only ensure the safety of the citizen, but also help the responders with much needed information that could be crucial to de-escalating a situation or assisting that individual. Our goal with this program is to be proactive, so we can help you the best way possible if a situation were to arise!
