The department is organized into 4 divisions – Patrol, Criminal Investigations, Administration, and Community Safety Divisions.

The City of Foley only accepts employment applications when there is an advertised opening within the department. The hiring process is in-depth and tough as well as highly competitive.
The 15-minute video below, which is a little dated, captures who we are as a police agency. The City of Foley is more than 100 years old. The video begins with the early days of the Town of Foley, then only one police officer, Chief Cobb, and progresses through time until present day. This video is dedicated to the men and women of the Foley Police Department past, present and future.
