Chief Thorsen


Greetings, and thank you for viewing the City of Clayton Police Department home page.  I assumed command of the Police Department in November of 2012.  I'm proud to call myself a member of the Clayton PD. We exist to preserve and where possible, enhance the quality of life our residents enjoy.

We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality service.  In Clayton, we believe in joining with residents to combat crime and the fear of crime.  People who live, work and travel through our City expect to be safe.  We will do everything in our power to assure this expectation is met.

We achieve our success by forming partnerships with the business community, fellow City staff members and our residents.  As your Chief of Police, my door is always open.  I look forward to meeting with you and sharing ideas on how to enhance the feeling of community we have in Clayton.  Working together, we can assure our community continues to be a safe place to live, work and play.

Chris Thorsen
