Become a police officer: start here

Welcome to the Nicholasville Police Department! If you believe your work should do more than just pay the bills — that it should improve the community and make a difference in someone’s life — then a career in law enforcement may be for you.

Our agency accepts applications any time.  Applications will stay on file for 1 year from date of submission.  Keep up to date on application deadlines for future processes by following our FaceBook page or Twitter feed.

Police officers see their work matter every day: responding to a traffic collision, helping a family in crisis, investigating a crime. It’s something different every day. We are looking for men and women from a variety of backgrounds who care about people and want to help solve problems.

I’m interested. Now what?

Message from the Chief

Todd Justice, Chief of Police

It is an honor and privilege to serve both the city of Nicholasville and our department personnel as Chief of Police. I have committed my entire career to the citizens of Nicholasville, serving them with dignity and integrity. My vision is to adhere to the mission statement of this agency which reads in part, “serve all people with respect, fairness, and compassion. We are committed to the prevention of crime and the protection of life and property. With community service as our foundation, we are driven by goals to enhance the quality of life. The Nicholasville Police Department is dedicated to providing a quality work environment and the development of its members through effective training and leadership.”

The Nicholasville Police Department is committed to continue building relationships with the community that we serve. We will provide the highest level of service to keep our citizens safe and build public trust. Community policing is very important to me and we will foster the relationships that we have developed over the years with our community partners.

Lastly, I am excited about the future of the Nicholasville Police Department. We are dedicated to our promise to keep Nicholasville safe while maintaining the trust of our citizens.

Thank you,

Todd Justice
Chief of Police
