Chief Matthew Jensby began his career with the Maize Police Department in 1996 as a patrol officer. During his time with the department, Chief Jensby has worked his way through the ranks of Police Sergeant, Police Lieutenant, Assistant Chief, and Interim Chief during transition periods within the department. In April 2003, Chief Jensby was officially appointed Police Chief. After appointment, Chief Jensby's priority was to provide the community with 24/7/365 police coverage. In June 2003, the Maize Police Department began continuous policing services, operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Since that time, additional staff has been added and numerous community-based programs have been initiated. Chief Jensby also implemented the first full time community-policing program, funded by federal grant money.
The City of Maize is quickly growing and transitioning from a small rural town to a growing suburban city on the edge of an ever-expanding metropolitan center. Under the direction of Chief Jensby, the Police Department continues in a state of steady growth and increased activities.
In the midst of all this change, the goal of the Maize Police Department remains the same; to provide the best services possible to our community. Chief Jensby continues to focus on positioning the department in advance of change, to ensure that, as the city grows, public safety services grow as well. The Chief continues to guide, identify and respond to the needs of the department to provide the most efficient, professional and highest quality of service to the citizens of Maize.
The Maize Police Department is committed to responding to the needs and expectations of our residents. Through a strong partnership with our citizens the Department will provide professional, community-oriented policing which "sets the bar" for law enforcement in this region.
Matthew Jensby, Chief of Police
