Chief of Police Eric Kruse

I would like to welcome you to the Charlestown Police Department’s website.  You will find useful links, important department news and updates on this site. I also encourage you to like our Facebook page; follow us on Twitter; and download our mobile smartphone app.  If you can’t make it to our station during regular business hours, I encourage your to check out to request non-emergency CHPD services online, as needed.

The Charlestown Police Department prides itself on serving the community with courage, professionalism, and integrity.  We utilize the latest technologies currently available, including a state of the art Ti Training Simulator, in preparing our officers to better protect the community.  Our officers are the best police officers in the area and we are proud of the services that we provide our community.

I grew up right here in Charlestown where I graduated from Charlestown High School. I started my career as a reserve police officer for Charlestown and also a full time dispatcher. I moved on to Clark County 911 as a dispatcher before getting hired as a full time police officer here in Charlestown. I’ve gotten to serve this City as a patrolman, Sergeant, Lieutenant and now as your Chief, I love our Community and appreciate your support.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.   I look forward to serving as your Chief of Police.
