Our History

Black and white image of Police department officers
The Pascagoula Police Department was once located in The Scranton Company Building on Delmas Avenue in Pascagoula, MS. The Scranton building was a combination of the Police Department, the Fire Station, City Hall, and Court.

As the city of Pascagoula grew, so did our Police Department. We are currently located at the Ben L. Briggs building on Live Oak Avenue, which was built in 1981. We have 65 full time sworn officers and 17 part time sworn officers. Pascagoula Police Department serves and protects approximately 24,000 residents with a daytime population of perhaps twice that many.
