Mission Statement

The mission of The Quitman Police Department is to reduce crime and provide professional law enforcement services to citizens while enhancing the quality of life in the community of Quitman. This Department strives to enforce the law and maintain order in a fair and impartial manner, recognizing the need for justice, and consistent appearance of justice. The Chief recognizes that no law enforcement agency can operate at its maximum potential without supportive input from the citizens it serves.

This Department actively solicits and encourages the cooperation of all citizens to reduce and limit the opportunities for crime and to assist in bringing to justice those that break the law. This Department actively pursues the “Golden Rule” in dealing with others and that is that we will strive to treat those persons as we ourselves wish to be treated.

As Quitman continues to grow and develop, the Quitman Police Department will provide the highest level of professional policing services to all those who live and visit here.  We look forward to working with you to make Quitman the safest community in Texas.

John D. Farmer

Chief of Police
