The Police Department staff consists of 35 regular officers, two supernumerary officers, six civilian dispatchers, one administrative secretary, and two full-time records clerks. The Police Department is proud to have been awarded national accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Fairfax, Virginia, since 1993.

The Department philosophy is Service to the Community.  We support D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), Police Cadets, and the Citizen Police Academy.  The Department uses a Juvenile Review Board, offering an alternative to criminal courts by referring youthful offenders meeting certain criteria to the Board for remediation.

The Operations Division is headed by Lieutenant Kelly Walsh (phone: 860-409-4241) and the Administration Division is headed by Lieutenant John Schmalberger (phone: 860-409-4216).

Residents of Avon over the age of 18 are encouraged to join the Citizen Police Academy.  Please call (860) 409-4200 for more information.
