Office of Chief Mark Mitchell

I would like to thank you for visiting our Webpage. The Canton Police Department adheres to community policing values.  These values mandate that we be as concerned with customer service as we are with maintaining a safe community.  Community policing is a philosophy that often mandates different strategies for different communities, with the cornerstone being police listening to and responding to our community’s needs.  As the Chief of Police, I have grown to un derstand the impact and influence social media can have on departmental activities and keeping our citizens informed.  Please join us on our official Canton Police Department Facebook page.
