Kaysville City Ordinances

The Kaysville Police Department has a program to collect unused and outdated prescription drugs. The department believes that this program will benefit the community in several aspects:
  1. It will help prevent the misuse, whether intentional or accidental, of unused or outdated medicines. Outdated medicines may pose a health hazard to you, medicines may often look similar and there is the possibility of taking the wrong medication.
  2. It will also help keep these drugs out of the hands of criminals. When the unused drugs are placed in your trash there is potential for them being retrieved by anyone and then being misused. It is also becoming a problem where individuals are stealing these medications and distributing them among their friends and associates.
  3. We can help the environment by keeping these drugs out of the water systems by properly disposing of them. Medications and other chemicals improperly disposed of through our sewer systems eventually end up in the water supply, preventing this contamination is better than creating a problem that future generations will have to deal with.
To dispose of your unused or outdated medications please bring them to the Kaysville Police Department, 80 North Main Street. A secure drop box has been placed in the foyer of the Police Department and will be available to the public on Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm (excluding holidays). The medications can be placed in the drop box in their containers, loose pills should be placed in plastic bags that will be available at the drop box. Liquid medications should be in sealed containers to prevent leakage. Syringes or other needles are not to be placed in the drop box. We do not accept Syringes or sharps containers. If you need any assistance or have questions please call the Kaysville Police Department at 801 546-1131.

Kaysville Police Department History


Old Kaysville Police Patch

Chief Lyle Larkins (May 18, 1926 - April 2, 2012)

Chief Lyle Larkins

In 1959 the first modern day police officer hired by Kaysville City was Lyle H Larkins. Chief Larkins started the police department from the ground up. He had to use his own car, a used Cadillac for a patrol vehicle. Lyle had a spot light mounted on it, however it did not have a police radio. In those first days of police work in Kaysville the public would call Lyle at home for his help. When Lyle was out on patrol his wife Nancy would take calls from either the Sheriff's dispatcher or a citizen. She would then turn on the porch light signaling Lyle when he drove by there was a call waiting. Lyle would drive by his house about every half hour or so to see if the light was on. Initially Lyle provided most of his equipment for his new police job, and his office consisted of two desk drawers at the City Building.

Lyle had no formal police training when he began his career in police work. He had served as a paratrooper in the US Army and he had a natural ability coupled with common sense and bravery to deal with people and difficult situations. Within a few months of being hired Lyle attended a two week police academy at Camp Williams. Lyle wasn't afraid of anything, an attribute Assistant Chief Lt Elmer Morrison would often remark about when talking about his friend and fellow officer Lyle Larkins.

From 1959 to 1990 Lyle developed the police department from a one officer department that had two drawers in the City Building , to a ten man police department with its own police station. The police department was in good hands with Chief Larkins. He had laid down the foundation that is our police department today, one of the best in Davis County and the State of Utah.


Chief David Helquist (Retired)

Chief David Helquist

Chief David Helquist was hired officially by Lyle Larkins on September 1, 1972. David Helquist worked for Chief Larkins until 1990 when Chief Larkins retired. David Helquist remarked how Chief Larkins took a chance on him. In 1972 David Helquist had just been released from five years of military police service in the United States Air Force. He was looking for a job and learned there was an opening at the Kaysville Police Department for a police officer position.

David Helquist went to the city offices to inquire about the job and the receptionist's working at the counter said that he needed to speak with Chief Lyle Larkins. They told David Helquist that he could find Chief Lyle Larkins at his house. David drove to Chief Larkins house and knocked on the door. Chief Larkin answered the door and the two shook hands. It wasn't any ordinary hand shake. It was a strong steel grip hand shake. Dave tried to return the firm hand shake. Lyle said "I like your hand shake, it's strong"

David met with Chief Larkins about the police job opening. As the conversation ended, Chief Larkins told David "drive up-town, and find Officer Elmer Morrison", the night car. "You can ride around with him and get a feel for our City." This was the beginning of David Helquist's career. Chief Heqluist served with honor and integrity until 2007 when he made the choice to retire after 35 years of service to the City and the citizens of Kaysville city.

While working for East Layton Police Michael learned that Kaysville City Police was hiring for a full-time police officer. He applied for the position and was interviewed by Chief Lyle Larkins and Mayor Glen Glundell. Micheal was hired and started his career with the Kaysville City Police Department on September 1, 1977. Micheal started out as a patrol officer and after a short time was put into the position as a school resource officer.
