POLICE AND FIRE
“It is the mission of the Tupelo Regional Airport Police Department to enhance the safety of the community of citizens who travel through the airport by upholding a commitment to excellence in the professional and courteous delivery of police and security services, while operating under the framework of the United States Constitution, through the reduction of fear and the preservation of human life while enforcing relevant statutes and regulations.”
In this new era of world terrorism, the Airport Police must remain vigilant. Our team is composed of full-time law enforcement officers who are also certified in Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (AARF).
Our airport police officers are duly authorized Peace Officers for the Tupelo Airport Authority who understand that good customer service skills and community outreach are an integral part of police work. This allows us to not only serve the Tupelo Regional Airport, but also the city of Tupelo; the 7th largest metropolitan area in Mississippi.
