Hattiesburg Police Department News

The Hattiesburg Police Department has the distinct pleasure of welcoming Officers Cory Shumock and Seth Blackmon to our growing organization. We are indeed excited about the experience and knowledge these officers will add to our department.

Today, We are excited to swear in two more officers as lateral transfers.

The community will see a scruffier version of Hattiesburg Police officers beginning Nov. 1., but all for a good cause. With a $25 entry “fee,” each sworn officer can forego shaving for the month of November and all proceeds will be donated to the department’s benevolent fund. Female officers who want to participate will donate $25 to the cause for an opportunity to win a gift certificate for a massage. The department’s benevolent provides a way for Hattiesburg Police Department to stretch its charitable arm a little farther throughout the community, from supporting local nonprofits during the holidays as well as supporting police officers and families during challenging times. While No Shave November is not a new event for the department, this year it is taking a different direction by bringing in a community voting element. Photos of participating officers will be posted on the department’s Facebook page to track each officer’s progress. At the end of November, the public will have an opportunity to vote on a “People’s Choice” award for best beard. On Dec. 1, the department will host a small ceremony to present the following awards among participants: - People’s Choice - Best Try - The Castaway - The Natural - The St. Nick Stay tuned for more updates throughout the month of November to see whose beard is best.

On Saturday, October 28, 2017, the Hattiesburg Police Department participated in the National Drug Take Back Initiative in efforts to keep our community safe and drug free.
