Message from Chief Elizondo










Hello, my name is Charles Elizondo and I have had the pleasure of serving the citizens of Paris for the past 30 plus years. I want to welcome you to our website. It is designed to be useful to the citizens of Paris and to introduce Paris to other visitors from the web. I am proud to be a part of this department. The men and women that work day to day make this department what it is today. We are fortunate to have dedicated and professional members as our first line of defense in the community. They are a major factor in keeping this community a safe place to live and work.

Visible patrol, follow up investigations, and active prevention programs are the key to keeping our crime rate low. We could not do our job, however, without the community support and involvement we receive through Neighborhood Watch programs and other eyes and ears within the community. Know your neighborhood and your neighbors. Keep a watch for each other. This community belongs to all and all are responsible for its character.

On behalf of the officers and staff of the Paris Police Department I would like to thank you for your visit and if you have any comments or suggestions you can contact me at
