Effective immediately and until further notice, our fingerprinting service to the public for job applications and permits are suspended.

In addition, we will not be processing any solicitor permits until further notice.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


On behalf of the members of the Carmel Police Department, I want to welcome you to the City of Carmel Police Department's web page.

Our officers and employees work very diligently in partnership with the Carmel community to ensure that the city remains a safe and secure environment in which to live and work.

These web pages will give you some idea and insight into the varied efforts the Carmel Police Department puts forth in providing quality law enforcement services to our community.

Our commitment to service to the community remains foremost as we carry out our daily duties. Working together, we will meet the public safety needs and generate the community support necessary to continue on our path of excellence.

CPD Traffic Stop Dashboard

On behalf of the dedicated, professional officers of the Carmel Police Department, I am proud to announce the release of our Traffic Stop Dashboard. This web-based portal gives citizens the opportunity to view statistics on traffic stops made by our officers as well as the number of warnings and citations written. Additionally, the dashboard enables the user to filter the traffic stop information using any combination of several categories; such as: Type of Stop, Driver Race, Driver Gender, Driver Age Range and Violation Type.

The Traffic Stop Dashboard was created in collaboration with KSM Consulting, who worked with a community focus group to determine the desired content. This dashboard will be updated monthly and will allow citizens to monitor the traffic stop activity of our officers throughout the year.

The addition of the Dashboard is part of our on-going effort to ensure transparency to the public. We realize that today, more than ever, it is important for police departments to be more transparent and open to the communities they serve. Last year we updated our website by making all of our department policies forward facing. We also update the website with quarterly reports on our uses of force, complaints and pursuits.

The Carmel Police Department is committed to the impartial and objective enforcement of state law and local ordinances.
Questions regarding the dashboard should be directed to Lt. Tim Byrne at tbyrne@carmel.in.gov or 317-571-2500.
Thank you for your interest in our agency.
