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.
