The Pascagoula Police Department was established by the people of this community and exists to serve them. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in the City of Pascagoula by working cooperatively with the public within the framework of the Constitution of the United States of America. Our objectives are to enforce the laws, preserve peace, reduce fear, and provide a safe and secure environment in which to live.
In March 2015, the Pascagoula Police Department became the first law enforcement agency in Jackson County to become nationally accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). Accreditation is an ongoing process of advancement and achievement, as the department must undergo an extensive review process by CALEA for re-accreditation every 4 years. On November 6th, 2017, a team of assessors conducted an on-site assessment at the department to ensure compliance with set standards. In March 2018, members of the agency will travel to Frisco, TX in the final step to receive national reaccreditation. Click here to learn more about CALEA.
