Message from the Chief


On behalf of the Newport Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our webpage. My name is Maurice Shults and it is my honor to serve as Chief of Police for the City of Newport.

The residents of Newport can be very proud of their police department and the men and women who commit themselves to providing quality service and ensuring the safety to all our residents and visitors. Our officers are well trained and devoted to the highest standards of performance, ethics and public service. We continue proactive policing that addresses crime through shared relationships with residents and officers.

The importance of partnership between a police department and the community it serves cannot be overstated. I invite you to become a partner in helping our city thrive by being a caring and considerate neighbor, staying informed, and being observant.
If our police department can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call.
