The Tallapoosa Police Department is made up of 14 hard working men and women dedicated to the safety and well being of the citizens and merchants of Tallapoosa, Georgia.
“Our mission is to be constantly vigilant against criminal activity to provide a safe community for our citizens and merchants”
Our sworn officers help to maintain Tallapoosa’s low crime rate and contribute to the community’s sense of hometown pride. The department is comprised of several specialized divisions including Neighborhood patrol, Interstate Crime Suppression Unit as well as a highly trained and effective Investigations team.
Our devotion to Community policing allows our citizens the freedom to enjoy many outdoor activities safely with their families without the fears that come along with many larger cities.
The Tallapoosa Police Department as well as many of the city’s generous merchants, team up each spring for the city Easter Egg Hunt. Donations also go toward safety material and other items for the school children of Tallapoosa.
