Support Division

Led by Deputy Chief Jason Thompson, the Support Division includes several officers who support the agency in various tasks and includes all of our administrative assistants.

Fleet and Equipment

Our fleet and equipment officer is responsible for the purchase, issuance, maintenance, and disposal of all vehicles and equipment used by members of the Noblesville Police Department. Other than salaries, equipment and vehicles are the biggest expense for the department, and maintaining the fleet with reliable vehicles and ensuring that officers have dependable, modern, mission-appropriate equipment that fits within our budget is a big responsibility.

Traffic Unit

The traffic unit responds to traffic complaints called in by residents and enforces traffic laws in high crash areas. The traffic unit also focuses on school zones and areas where there are a large number of pedestrians. The traffic unit investigates school bus stop arm violations, conducts speed surveys, deploys the speed trailers, and assists with car seat inspection/installations. If you'd like to report a traffic problem, please complete our online traffic complaint form. Your submission will be assigned to a traffic unit officer or district officer and, if you choose to leave contact information, you will be contacted regarding enforcement action taken.

School Resource Officers

Our school resource officers (SROs) are assigned to all schools in the Noblesville Schools district. All school resource officers are members of the National Association of School Resource OfficersThe district's high school, two middle schools, seven public elementary schools, all private schools, cooperative schools, and all charter schools in the city are under the jurisdiction of the school resource officers. These officers are also advisors for the Noblesville Police Cadets, teach Project Truth classes, help prepare safety plans for schools, and are at the schools on a daily basis.

Community Outreach & Special Events

Our community outreach & special events coordinator is responsible for the department’s efforts to communicate with the businesses and residents of Noblesville. Sgt. Marley Pagel coordinates efforts to reduce crime and increase the quality of life of residents and visitors. The Noblesville Police Department is active on social media with accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Next Door. 

Our Crime Watch Program encourages neighbors in many city neighborhoods to look out for one another and to contact NPD when they see suspicious activity, regardless of whether it ends up being a criminal act or not. Our reoccurring, rotating events help us reach people we might not interact with except for our mutual desire for coffee. 

Our Business Watch Program is similar to Crime Watch but focuses on the relationships with our local businesses. NPD provides several training opportunities with those registered with our Business Watch Program which include, but are not limited to, human trafficking, shoplifting prevention, and fraud detection. This program allows NPD to maintain up-to-date after hours contact information for those businesses in the program in case of an emergency. 

Sgt. Pagel is also responsible for organizing and staffing events held by the City of Noblesville, the Noblesville Police Department, or any other organization where a police presence or a large number of attendees are expected. Annual special events include the Noblesville Main Street Farmers Market, Peony Festival, Fourth of July Parade and Fireworks Festival, Noblesville Street Dance, National Night Out, the Noblesville High School Homecoming Parade, and the Christmas Parade.
