Welcome to the Jonesboro Police Department website! Our goal with this site is for the citizens of this community and beyond to have easy access to the police department day and night. Just a few of the features of our site include integrated contact forms and a phone directory for your convenience in the Contact JPD page. You can find tons of information on here about the department, how we operate and the different services we provide for our community in the Divisions sections. Answers to most of your questions can be located on the FAQ page. If you are interested in employment with our department, look at the “Join JPD” page to see if you have what it takes to be an officer.
