Thank you for visiting our web page to find out about our organization. We are an active organization and we pride ourselves on our service to citizens who live, work and travel through our city.

The mission of the Kenton Police Department is to provide service to the public. We are dedicated to the needs of our citizens, preventing crimes and investigating crimes that do happen.

Our staff is comprised of fourteen full-time officers and four auxiliary officers. In addition to the officers we have four part-time dispatchers.

Our office is also part of the Hardin County Crime Task Force. The function of the Task Force is drug enforcement and the investigation of any major criminal incidents that happen anywhere in Hardin County. A number of officers are also part of the county wide special response team.

The department also has a dual purpose canine. The canine is not only trained for patrol use but also narcotics detection.

We encourage people to help us make our community safe. If you see a crime in progress or some type of suspicious activity, please call us at 419-673-0771 or dial 911.
