About Chief Worsham
Although Chief Scott Worsham became Hernando’s Chief of Police in October of 2015, he began his law enforcement career over 20 years ago ('97) with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife fisheries and Parks. In 1999 he joined the Horn Lake Police Department and would remain there for over 16 years.
Chief Worsham is a fervent believer in the “broken windows” theory of community policing. He trains and expects officers to utilize crime reports and data to develop strategies and deploy resources to areas of concern. To maintain and foster prosperous relationships between its citizens and business community is paramount to success in proactive policing. This proactive approach to policing drastically reduces crime and in turn accomplishes the mission of reducing the fear of crime, and enhancing public safety for our community.
Not only is Chief Worsham a graduate of the Mississippi Law Enforcement Training Academy in Pearl, Mississippi, but he also graduated from the FBI National Academy, Session #244. He has held instructor certifications in 13 areas of Law Enforcement, and accumulated over 5000 hours of continuing education and training hours. He is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Mississippi Chiefs of Police, FBI National Academy Associates, and past director Southeastern SWAT Association State of Mississippi.

Having an actual law enforcement officer overseeing the budget who understands the needs of the profession is a must.
