On behalf of the officers of the Cowpens Police Department, I want to welcome you to our webpage. Cowpens is a safe city, but our team of dedicated officers are committed to continually seek out and implement creative, effective and cost-conscious strategies to ensure that Cowpens remains one of the safest communities of its size in the State of South Carolina.

We are a proud organization of sophisticated, compassionate and hard-working individuals, devoted to our core principles of:

  • Fidelity to Public Trust
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Fairness
  • Humility
  • Respect for Individual Rights
  • Dignity                    


In our effort to keep our crime low, the Cowpens Police Department has embraced a balanced approach to public safety. As a forward-looking police agency, we know that crime and the fear of crime can best be reduced when a well-rounded approach of prevention, intervention and enforcement options are employed. While our core mission calls for the aggressive enforcement of State laws, including local ordinances, we also have an obligation to inform and educate local residents, business owners and their employees so that they can take steps to make potential crime targets less attractive to would-be criminals. I hope you find our website informational and user-friendly. Feel free to contact us with your comments or questions.   

In closing, rest assured that we are committed to meeting and maintaining the highest standards of police professionalism, and we understand the value of providing a superior level of customer service to those who live, visit and work in our fine city.
