Message From Chief Jeffrey M. Hadley About COVID-19

The men and women of the Chatham County Police Department are working hard to maintain social distancing for the health and safety of our community, police officers, and civilian personnel. For this reason, we have made a few changes to our operations as we work our way through this pandemic together.

In emergencies, our officers will be immediately dispatched to the scene. Many of our other calls for service will be handled over the phone, with an officer speaking to the citizen to gather information and take a report. Please continue to use 9-1-1 for emergencies, and 912-652-6500, ext. 1 for non-emergency calls.

As another social distancing measure, our offices are currently closed to the public. However, we are fully staffed and operational, and you can reach our offices during normal business hours by phone. We are open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
