Message from Chief David Adams:

On behalf of the men and women of the Waynesville Police Department, I welcome you to our website. I hope it proves to be beneficial for you. As the Chief of Police, I will use my training, experience and education to the fullest potential for the citizens of Waynesville. My philosophy behind this statement is “Excellence through Public Service”.  My entire law enforcement career has been established under the Community Oriented Policing Model; which I believe is an integral part of an effective law enforcement administrator.

Waynesville is an amazing Town and I want to maintain your quality of life and ensure that your businesses, homes and personal safety are protected. I will work diligently to make sure that our agency will be accountable, accessible and responsive to your needs and concerns.

My desire is for our agency to continue building positive relationships with all residents and community stakeholders. I have an open-door policy and I welcome your ideas and feedback as we strive to build a stronger and safer community together.

Honored to serve,

David P. Adams Chief Adams
