CSO & Animal Control 

The Community Services Division operates under the direction of the Evansville  Police Department and receives assistance from Community Development, Building Inspector, Police, Prosecuting Attorney, Courts, and others to enforce codes. Our mission is to safeguard health, safety, property and public welfare of the Town's citizens through enforcement of ordinances and regulations adopted by the Evansville Town Council. The primary functions of the Community Service Officer(s) are to educate the public in code issues and to work with the citizens to achieve code compliance to make Evansville a safe and beautiful place to live and work. Some common complaints reported by citizens and found by the Community Service Officer(s) include but are not limited to:

  • Junk/Junk Vehicles
  • Trash/Debris/Refuse
  • Overgrown Weeds/Vegetation
  • Abandoned/Unlicensed Vehicles
  • Trees overhanging streets or sidewalks
  • Obstruction of intersections
  • Illegal signs
  • Fence compliance
  • Parking and Impound Law
  • Dangerous Buildings
  • Business License Enforcement
  • Illegal dumping/spillage of oil or other hazardous material on streets or property
  • Parking Regulations
  • Animal Control

Compliance

The Community Service Officer(s) strives to resolve code violations informally through the cooperation of the individuals involved. Many issues can be resolved through working together to obtain the goal of violation abatement. When a potential code violation is observed by Community Service Officer(s) or reported by any other person, Community Service Officer(s) will conduct an investigation to determine the validity of the initial observation or complaint. If there is a violation, Community Service Officer(s) shall notify the responsible person(s) verbally or in writing. After a violation notice is issued for ordinance violations, periodic follow up inspections are conducted to determine if compliance has been accomplished

Penalties

Failure to comply with a Notice of Violation may result in Court Prosecution with the assessment of monetary fines upon the finding of guilt, and or abatement at the owner’s expense as provided for by Evansville Code.

Citizens are encouraged to contact Brandy Nester , Code Enforcement Officer at, 307-234-1270 or 307-234-0897

Request Ride-Along 

The main purpose of the Ride-Along Program is to improve police and public relations by familiarizing participants with the complex and unpredictable nature of police work. It can also be a great introduction to daily life on the police force.

All participants are required to be at least 18 years of age or obtain written consent from a legal guardian, and be able to pass a minor background check. The participant would then be assigned to ride in a marked patrol car with a uniformed officer.

Participants who are interested in the Ride-Along program are required to provide information that will be used to perform a minor background check. Please download a Citizen Ride Along and Hold Harmless / Regulations Agreement Form. Once completed you may drop it off in person, mail, or fax the form back to the Police Department. You will be notified of the date of your scheduled ride along. If you have a specific officer you would like to ride with or date you would like to ride please include that on the form.

Please familiarize yourself with the following regulations prior to arriving for your scheduled ride along.

  1. Participants shall wear professional casual clothing. Shorts, sleeveless shirts, and T-shirts will not be acceptable attire.
  2. Participants shall be under the direct control of the police officer.
  3. Officers will not allow participants to enter private homes or other areas where a citizen has a reasonable expectation of privacy without the explicit consent of the citizen. Participants will also not be allowed to photograph and/or videotape within these same areas.
  4. Participants shall conduct themselves in a civil and courteous manner at all times.
  5. Participants shall not interfere with police officers while in the performance of their duties.
  6. Participants shall not perform police duties. In an emergency, they may take appropriate action to protect themselves and/or officers.

Training

Officers of the Evansville Police Department receive extensive training. It starts with completing the basic peace officer course with over 600 hours class room and hands on experience. There is a three month field training program that goes along with the basic academy. Once the basics are covered each officer takes advanced training with specialized topics of criminal interdiction, investigations, advanced firearms, use of force  along with the many other courses available. Officers are required to have a minimum of 80 hours every two years to maintain their certifications. The more training an officer receives the better service they can give to the community they serve.
