The Hawkins Police Department is the law enforcement agency of the city of Hawkins, Indiana, United States. It has been led by Chief of Police Jim Hopper since 1979.


Police Chief Hopper started working at the police department in 1979 and has stated the worst thing to happen during his employment was "when an owl attacked Eleanor Gillespie's head because he thought it was a nest."[1]

The Hawkins Police shoulder patch.

The police officers wear light blue button-up shirts with the United States flag on the right shoulder and the Hawkins Police patch on the left. The Chief is distinguished in that he wears a beige shirt and pants.

Each officer wears a metallic silver badge on their left chest, with the writing "Hawkins Police" followed by the seal of Hawkins and "Officer" and their badge number written on the bottom. The chief's badge is gold and says "Chief."

Behind the scenes

  • The police cruisers and uniforms, including the shoulder patches, are heavily influenced by the appearance of the Amity Police Department in the 1975 horror film Jaws, directed by Steven Spielberg.
