In 1975 our City Leaders decided to form our own Police Department. Prior to 1975 we depended on the service of our Saline County Sheriff’s office. Due to under staffing at the Sheriff’s office, we formed our own Police Department using a part-time staff.
In 1996, Federal Grants were used to form a well-needed full time staff of officers along with an additional part-time officer. In 1999, an additional Federal Grant was approved enabling us to hire another full time Police Officer.
At this time, Haskell has five full-time officers. Haskell is also patrolled by the Saline County Sherrif’s office and the Arkansas State Police.
The Haskell Police Department is centrally located across from Harmony Grove School.
