The mission of the Mauldin Police Department is to enhance the quality of life in the City of Mauldin by working cooperatively with the community to reduce the fear of crime and the occurrence of crime through joint crime prevention and reduction strategies.

The Mauldin Police Department’s vision is to become a model for excellence in the law enforcement profession, while always bearing in mind, that our ultimate responsibility is the protection of our community through a guardian mindset and the heart of a servant. All of our employees are expected to be leaders in initiating and maintaining positive relationships with members of our community. These community bonds will form a medium where public safety concerns can be anticipated and addressed.

The Mauldin Police Department is divided into three (3) major divisions and several subdivisions called units, teams, squads or sections. The major divisions consist of the Office of the Chief of Police (administrative), the Field Operations Division (patrol function), and the Support Division (detectives, school resource officers (SRO’s), communications, training, animal/codes enforcement, and reserve officers).


The Mauldin Police Department is an award-winning, valuable asset to the local community. The department is recognized for their outstanding work in DUI enforcement, traffic safety, and youth services.

The Mauldin Police Department is currently conducting a survey to seek the opinions of victims of crime to assess the quality of services provided and make improvements that would be helpful to crime victims in our City. We are also conducting an ongoing survey for citizens to provide feedback on the Department’s service to the City of Mauldin.


The Police Department depends upon the hardworking and dedicated men and women who dutifully serve the City of Mauldin.

We have cultivated an atmosphere of inclusion and welcome new police officer applications, reserve officer applications or communications applicants.


The Mauldin Police Department participates in the CALEA Law Enforcement Accreditation process. As a part of this process, we provide an opportunity for public feedback via the CALEA Portal which can be located here:

The purpose of this public portal is to receive comments regarding our compliance with CALEA standards, engagement in the service community, delivery of public safety services, and overall candidacy for accredited status. These comments can be in the form of commendations or concerns. The overall intent of the accreditation process is to provide our agency with information to support continuous improvement, as well as foster our pursuit of professional excellence.

It is important to know that CALEA is not an investigatory body and subsequently the public portal should not be used to submit information for such purposes. Additionally, there will be no response other than acknowledgement to submissions; however, the information will be considered in context to its relevancy to compliance with standards and the tenets of CALEA® Accreditation.

Standard titles may be viewed on the CALEA website: Law Enforcement -Standards Titles | CALEA® | The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. The level of accreditation the Mauldin Police Department participates in include only those applicable standards that are in bold.  Questions related to the accreditation process may be directed to the Accreditation Manager.


Going above and beyond the traditional law enforcement role, the department is active within the community and engages adults in civil service.

After 5:00 pm your applications can be turned into the dispatch center at the Mauldin Police Department. Seating is limited so please have your applications turned in as soon as possible.


Since the summer of 2008, the Mauldin Police Department has hosted a Youth Academy for boys and girls. The program allows students aged 10-14 to experience many aspects of a career in law enforcement. Daily workouts, tests, training, and evaluations assess a participant’s mental and physical endurance. Upon completion of the program, students are recognized before the Mauldin City Council for their achievements.
