Illegal drug use is a major problem in Carbon Hill. Other crimes such as domestic violence, robbery, burglary, rape, murder, and theft can usually be traced back to illegal drug use. Carbon Hill Police Department has adopted a zero tolerance for illegal drugs. Police Chief Ron Colburn and Lt. Jason Richardson along with fellow officers at CHPD have declared war on drugs and those persons who choose to sell and use illegal drugs and alcohol in our community. Check out our progress on our Facebook page at Carbon Hill PD. We post pictures of the illegal drugs and paraphernalia we removed from our community each time we make an arrest.
The Carbon Hill Police Department employs 6 full time certified/sworn officers, 2 part-time certified/sworn officers, 3 full time jailers/emergency communication officers, and 2 part time jailers/emergency communication officers.
