Every Hour, Every Day The Southaven Police Department has proudly served the citizens and community of Southaven, Mississippi, since 1980 when the City was born.
Chief Tom Long was the first officer hired when the City began. Today, policing a population of over 45,000 residents requires a department that reacts to the needs of our community while being proactive in our law enforcement strategies. We at the Southaven Police Department take great pride in community and our role in keeping our citizens safe. We are a model agency in our dedication, service, training, and innovative programs.
The Department’s slogan, "Protecting and serving our community, every hour, every day," truly reflects the professionalism and attitude for which our Department is nationally recognized.
