On January 22, 2020, Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Public Health issued an amended statewide health order to aid in Alabama's efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The amended Safer at Home order *mandating that masks are to be worn in public* is extended through March 5th.


Read the most recent order here.

In the midst of uncertainty, we need you to know we are here for you. We are an essential service, and we swore an oath to serve and protect. We won't stop working to keep you and your loved ones safe.


Due to increased cases of COVID-19, no reports will be taken in person at police headquarters. We're asking that you call our main business line in order to reach an officer. The number is 205-620-6550. Our dispatchers are standing by ready to assist you. We are also suspending fingerprint services.

Our patrol division is still responding to calls for service in the community. Officers will be wearing PPE, such as gloves and masks, when they arrive. They may ask you to step outside if they are responding to a home. This is to keep you and our officers protected.

Please only dial 9-1-1 in an emergency. All other calls should be directed to the business line. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience.

Please know, we thrive when we are able to engage with you and have that face-to-face interaction, and it is essential that those relationships continue. We're all in this together, and we all must do our part to keep our community healthy.


As we take these precautionary measures to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19, we invite you to engage with us in other ways for the time being, such as through our social media channels. You'll find a link to all of those platforms at the top of this page.
