Office of Capitol Police Duties

The Office of Capitol Police is the Law Enforcement unit of the Department of Finance and Administration. As such, the department is charged with the responsibility of protecting life and property within state facilities under the jurisdiction of the Department of Finance and Administration.

Enforcement personnel employed by the Office of Capitol Police must be certified law enforcement officers through the Mississippi Office of Standards and Training. They must also be fully prepared and committed to rendering courteous, professional law enforcement service at all times. As law enforcement officers of this agency and the state of Mississippi, Office of Capitol Police Officers must discharge their duties pursuant to the guidelines established by the Department of Finance and Administration and the laws of this state.

Our goal is to provide excellent service and protection to the visitors, employees, and elected officials within our jurisdiction in a professional manner. By performing every task with that goal in mind, we will surely achieve it.
