Fire & Police Departments
Does Lakeland have its own fire and police departments?
The City of Lakeland contracts with the Shelby County Fire Department for fire services,*** and the Shelby County Sheriff's Office for police services.
Lakeland households and businesses pay monthly fees in their utility bills for these services.
***Board of Commissioners 2/8/18 meeting update:
Operation of the Lakeland Fire Department is to begin July 1, 2019.
In 2017, the City of Lakeland started to bring fire safety into our own hands and are in the process of putting fire services under our Lakeland community services umbrella. Our efforts will yield tremendous cost savings over the long term. Now, we're on the right path to control quality and growth of fire services and phase out the fire fee we pay each month, as residents.
