APD’s parking lot will be closed due to construction June 29 to August 1. Visitor parking will be available at Ashland Town Center. Once completed, this grant-funded project will replace our crumbling parking lot with water permeable pavers enhancing APD’s appearance as well as improving our environment.

APD Offers Free Child Safety Seat Checks

Need help with installing your child's safety seat? Have questions about the appropriate safety seat for your child? APD can help. Many of our officers are certified child passenger safety seat technicians. Call 412-0600 to set up an appointment with one of our technicians. We also can accommodate walk-ins (if a child seat technician is available) Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Our "Coffee with a Cop" program provides an opportunity for the Ashland Police Department and community members to come together to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. Coffee with a Cop provides a unique forum for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Ashland’s neighborhoods.

APD plans to host Coffee with a Cop meetings regularly to build partnerships in our community. For more information click here.
