    Welcome to the Lakeland Police Department’s website.

    The Lakeland Police Department is a full service police agency, accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA). We have dedicated personnel who are committed to the philosophy of community-oriented policing. Through a partnership with the residents of Lakeland we can work to solve problems and improve the quality of life for the entire community. Part of that partnership is to provide open communications with our public partners. For more information on Accreditation, click here.

    The Lakeland Police Department has 231 sworn and 119 civilian personnel who work in various functions of the department and are united in our effort to make our City a better place to work, play and live. We are dedicated to promoting the safety and welfare of the citizens of Lakeland through crime prevention and other essential public safety services.

    Our goal is to make the website a center of communications with the community in addition to our social media outlets of Facebook, Twitter, Nixle, YouTube and Instagram. We hope you will take advantage of our new website and keep up with the steady flow of information we offer here. Let us know how we can improve our service to you.
