WelcomeChief Polidori - Web

The Southern Pines Police Department (SPPD) is committed to ensuring a safe and inclusive environment throughout our service area by utilizing community-based policing strategies. These strategies are built on a commitment to service, professionalism, protection and dedication. The SPPD provides a professional police agency in line with best practices and guidance from nationally accredited standards published through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). 

This website, along with Facebook and Citizen Connect, are used to increase transparency, collaboration and communication between the SPPD and the community we serve. Facebook and this website are great resources for anyone seeking information about the SPPD current initiatives and community efforts, as well as contact information, press releases, and recruitment information. The SPPD strives to reduce crime, increase safety, and create solutions to challenges affecting all aspects, our residents, visitors, and any other citizen that is within the Town of Southern Pines.

Always be observant of suspicious circumstances and call the Southern Pines Police Department directly at 910-692-7031, or dial 911 to get connected to the Southern Pines Police Department Communications Center. Please be involved in the community and encourage others to do the same.

Look at the services we provide and consider ways you can join our efforts and help keep your neighborhood, business, or school safe. Learn more about protecting yourself by reviewing the community oriented policing page, and consider applying to be a volunteer in one of the many programs or to attend the Citizen’s Police Academy or the High School Police Academy.
