The City of Bartlett Police Department has the responsibility to protect and serve the citizens of the City of Bartlett. Our mission, in partnership with the citizens of the community, is to protect the lives and property of those citizens, to understand and respond to the specific needs of the community and to improve the quality of life for the citizens by building capacities to maintain order, resolve problems, prevent crimes through high visibility and community oriented policing concepts and apprehend criminals in a manner consistent with the Constitution of the United States, the laws of the State of Tennessee, and the ordinances of the City of Bartlett.
The Bartlett Police Department received its Accreditation from the Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation (TLEA) program on September 27th, 2012. TLEA recognizes departments who have met accreditation requirements and who continue to comply with guidelines set forth by the Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation Program. After meeting many stringent requirements, the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police and its Board of Directors awarded this Meritorious Accreditation to our very proud Police Department.

The Bartlett Police Department normally welcomes hundreds of visitors throughout the year for tours of the police station. It’s always great to have so many residents, especially kids, come through the department to learn more about our officers and operations and see how hard we work to keep our community safe.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still hard at work at the station, but unfortunately we can’t welcome visitors at this time. We want to offer you a virtual tour so you can visit the station from the safety of your own home!
