Francis D. 'Chip' Peterson I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Town of Rising Sun and wish you success in your individual endeavors.

The Rising Sun Police Department is working to make the Town of Rising Sun a safe place to live and work by forming partnerships with its citizens and businesses.

To us, providing Police services is a lot more than just writing a crime report after a crime has occurred; it means working with the community to prevent crime and to solve community problems.

I invite you to become our partners in making your neighborhood a better place to live.

Being a partner might mean:

- Participating in a neighborhood watch group or neighborhood improvement committee
- Volunteering at a neighborhood school or youth organization
- Staying informed and getting involved in community issues that matter to you
- Being an observant, caring and considerate neighbor   

Our police agency will continue to provide exceptional police service in partnership with the community, and seek opportunities to further challenge our officers and civilian employees with the responsibility of problem solving initiatives.

By working together, we can continue to make the Town of Rising Sun a comfortable and safe neighborhood to raise our families.  Please feel free to contact us with your concerns, interests, and suggestions.   

F. D. "Chip" Peterson, Jr.
Chief of Police
