Police Department

From the Desk of Chief Prickett

Welcome to the Florence Police Department Website.  My name is Shane Prickett.  I was appointed to the position of Chief of Police November 15th, 2019.  At that time the police department had 12 full-time officers and 1 part time officer.  Here are some of my goals for the police department.

  • Remain vigilant and proactive instead of reactive.
  • Community Policing: featuring walk and talks within the community.
  • Strong working intergovernmental agreements with local, state and federal agencies.
  • Maintain the long term stability of the School Resource Officer program.
  • Engage young adults to build a stronger Florence Police Cadet program.
  • Continue to provide the highest quality police services to the people who live in, work in and visit our community.

I'm honored to serve the citizens and community of Florence.  I hope in my time as Police Chief, that the officers and I will meet and exceed all of the goals we have set.

Thank you,

Chief Shane Prickett
