The City of Ozark would like to congratulate Police Chief Justin Arnold, for being selected by the International Association of Chiefs of Police as a 2022, 40 Under 40.  

 "Chief Justin Arnold embodies leadership and dedication through his service to the Ozark community and the law enforcement profession as a whole." - Samantha Payne, Deputy City Administrator.

Beginning in 2019, Chief Arnold championed the Hero in Training program, designed to engage children of all ages and educate them about policing. The response from the community was overwhelming, and the program continues to be a great success, earning the Missouri Municipal League Innovation Award in 2021.

"I am focused on mentoring and developing future law enforcement leaders from within the community.” - Chief Justin Arnold
