Police Department

Our Pledge:

Lake City Police Department will continue to serve and protect the people of the City while mitigating the potential exposure to and transmission of the coronavirus. The purpose of this is to inform the public of the common-sense policing approach which we will observe as we monitor this public health crisis.

Our citizens should continue to call 911 for emergencies. To reduce the spread and exposure to our Officers, when appropriate, the Officer may ask you to simply step outside your home while providing information. In addition, we may attempt to respond to a non-emergency call by telephone where possible. This will not apply to any emergency calls where immediate contact may be necessary. The lobby of the Police Department will be open, access will be prohibited to the Offices of the Department. If you need copes of reports, or any assistance that can be handled by phone please call 843-374-5411.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate and work to make the best decisions on behalf of our residents, visitors, and staff.
