Brinkley Police Department

The Brinkley Police Department was housed inside Brinkley City Hall from 1963 until construction of the new jail facility. Community support and strong leadership from Brinkley Police Chief, Ed Randle made the state-of-the art jail a possibility. The department currently operates with 9 police officers and plans to add one more.

The addition of SUVs to the department in school colors of black and gold has been well received by the community.  Mutual respect between the Brinkley Police department and citizens of Brinkley make  a safe community with a low crime rate.

The Department prides itself on being transparent and community policing. Police Chief, Ed Randle, says, “Our job is to protect the city and its residents and that’s what we do. We live here and protect here. We want our citizens to feel safe and respected.


Chief Ed Randle

Chief Randle was born in Brinkley and graduated Brinkley High School and the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. He was a Brinkley police officer for almost 30 years before taking the position as chief 6 years ago.
