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, at 611 Live Oak Avenue, built in 1981. We have 57 Sworn Police Officers and 37 Civilian employees. The Pascagoula Police Department serves and protects approximately 22,000 residents with a daytime population of twice that many.
