News and Announcements


In April the AZ Governor's Office of Highway Safety (AZ GOHS) awarded the Kingman Police Department a grant through the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) for the purchase of a radar/speed trailer for speed enforcement and traffic safety.  Cpl. Dan Spivey applied for the grant during the fall of 2012.  The award allowed for the purchase of the trailer valued at $8,100.00.  Cpl. Spivey, a certified drug recognition expert and traffic enforcement officer assigned to the motor team, is the department's DUI enforcement coordinator.  Cpl. Spivey has been instrumental in the department being awarded thousands of dollars in grant funding to support enhanced DUI and speed enforcement throughout the year.  The radar/speed enforcement trailer has already been used in different neighborhoods throughout the city.  Requests for the trailer and speed enforcement can be made by contacting the Kingman Police Department traffic enforcement division.

The Kingman Police Department will be conducting joint operations with other area law enforcement agencies as part of the Western Arizona DUI Taskforce this Labor Day Holiday Weekend. Officers and deputies will be seeking to apprehend those who choose to drive while impaired. The Western Arizona DUI Taskforce will include agencies from Mohave, La Paz, and Yuma Counties which are committed to the safe passage of motorists traveling this busy holiday weekend.

Our DUI enforcement is made possible by funding provided through the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and NHSTA, the National Highway Safety Transportation Administration. Every year scores of preventable injuries and deaths take place on our roads and highways as a result of poor choices made by those to choose to drive after consuming alcohol as part of the holiday celebrations.

If you observe a suspected impaired driver immediately call your local law enforcement agency, provide a good description, direction of travel, if possible a license plate and description of the driver to assist us in removing the subject from the road. Don’t confront the individual, simply be a good witness and keep a safe distance. We all have to work together to prevent such tragedies from being repeated.

The Kingman Police Department received a call from a subject in Mohave County advising they received several calls from a person who identified themselves as “Detective Roland” with the Kingman Police Department, who was possibly attempting to intimidate or defraud the victims.  The Kingman Police Department does not have a “Detective Roland” and wants to warn the public that if they should receive calls that seem suspicious to contact your local authority.

Mission Statement

"It is the mission of the Kingman Police Department to maintain a high quality of life for our residents and visitors, through an active partnership with the community, by being proactive in reducing crime, apprehending criminal offenders, and aggressively addressing all public safety concerns." 

Coffee with Cops

Coffee with Cops is a community outreach program. KPD holds these events at different times and locations throughout the city on a quarterly basis. The events are advertised and posted, inviting anyone in the community to come and share a cup of coffee with members of the department. The idea is to make ourselves more accessible to the general public for questions and comments. The Kingman Public Safety Mobile Command Post is usually the meeting point and makes the event easier to find.

The next Coffee with the Cops has not yet been scheduled. Please check back later.
