The Mauldin Police Department is an award- winning, valuable asset to the local community. The department is recognized for their outstanding work in DUI enforcement, traffic safety and youth services.

Going above and beyond the traditional law enforcement role, the department is active within the community and engages youth in civil service. Since the summer of 2008, the Mauldin Police Department has hosted a Youth Academy for boys and girls. The program allows students aged 11-14 to experience many aspects of a career in law enforcement. Daily workouts, tests, training, and evaluations assess a participant’s mental and physical endurance. Upon completion of the program, students are recognized before the Mauldin City Council for their achievements. The program continues to be a huge success and will continue annually.

The Mauldin Police Department is composed of 8 divisions; Animal Control, Investigations, K-9, Uniformed Patrol, Property/Evidence, School Resource Officer, Traffic Safety Unit, and Training.
