On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the New Smyrna Beach Police Department, I welcome you to our website. We are committed to outstanding customer service as we deliver professional public safety services to those who live and work in New Smyrna Beach and the many tourists who visit us annually to enjoy our incredible climate and natural beauty.

Driven by the department’s mission statement to reduce crime and improve the quality of life, our staff of innovative, professional and dedicated employees strive to provide the highest level of service to our citizens and visitors. A key component of our service delivery is to recognize the changing needs of our community and law enforcement’s role in addressing those needs. We believe that proactive policing through the Community Policing Model is the best way to deter crime.

Frequently serving as a model of contemporary policing, the New Smyrna Beach Police Department has long set a standard of excellence for community policing, customer service and professionalism. Through our innovative programs and social media, our work is even more transparent as we diligently strive to ensure open communication and accountability at all levels. This website reaffirms that commitment to the public to be transparent and accountable in all of our services. It is one component of our information sharing, as is our social media program where you can find us on Facebook, Twitter (@NSBPolice) and so you can let us know how we may better serve you.

I am honored to serve as the Chief of Police and privileged to lead these dedicated men and women. Please contact me through this website in order to share your thoughts and suggestions. I look forward to hearing from you.

Mike Coffin, Chief of Police
