About the Statesboro Police Department

Police Department

The police department is a full service law enforcement agency with an authorized strength of 75 officers and additional support staff including dispatchers and administrative specialists. The police department responds to calls for service, investigates crimes, and enforces traffic laws. The police department has three distinct bureaus: Patrol, Administration, and Operations. The Department website is full of information, and citizens can access public police reports, file a non-emergency report, and research criminal activity through our Crime Map.

Mission Statement and Credo

The police department's credo is Duty, Honor, Community. The mission of the Statesboro Police Department is to create a safe community by reducing crime, building trust, and ensuring the safety of our citizens within the framework of the United States Constitution.

Patrol Bureau

The Patrol Bureau is the largest and most visible bureau in the police department. The uniformed officers of the patrol bureau are the primary responders to emergency incidents, handle the vast majority of the calls for service, and make the most arrests. This bureau is commanded by Captain Kaleb Moore, and he is assisted by two lieutenants. The lieutenants each supervise a "watch" which consists of three patrol teams, each led by a sergeant. Our officers work four ten hour shifts each week, and between the six patrol teams, they provide 24 hour a day, seven day a week coverage.

Operations Bureau

The Operations Bureau consists of the Criminal Investigations Division (Detectives), Dispatch, Records, and Alcohol Control. Detectives actively work drug investigations, track gang related intelligence, and conduct most of our felony level criminal investigations. The Operations Bureau is led by Captain James Winskey and he is aided by a Detective Sergeant, Dispatch Supervisor, and Records Supervisor. Dispatchers work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and keep track of officer locations and activities throughout their shift. If you need a police officer to respond, it all starts with a dispatcher!

Administrative Bureau

The Administrative Bureau includes the Office of the Chief of Police. Deputy Chief Rob Bryan leads the staff assigned to Administration, including the Training Sergeant, Public Information Specialist, and the Office of Professional Standards. Additionally, the budget is coordinated through the Administrative Bureau. Recruiting and Internal Affairs are handled by the Professional Standards sergeant, and the Training Sergeant coordinates and plans all department training. The Public Information Specialist coordinates all official messaging from the police department, and coordinates with all media inquiries.
