Interacting with you as a resident of West Plains is one of the most important things we do. The more information you can access through Police Department bulletins, special events and other resources, the safer the choices you can make. The more information you can provide to us by staying aware, reporting a crime or spotting a suspect, the better we can protect you.

Your safety is the reason we’re here, so we provide real-time, accurate data and effective, open communication and transparency so you know what we are doing and why we’re doing it. One of the primary ways we do this is through this website and social media.

Crime Prevention

As you know, crime is on the increase in most large U.S. cities. It is also becoming more prevalent in small communities.  Thinking that it can only happen to someone else and doing nothing to prepare yourself or take precautionary measures in case makes you the perfect victim criminals are looking for.
