Picayune Police Win Top Award

The Picayune Police Department had an extra reason to celebrate on this 4th of July Holiday. The Department recently won the State's top award for Public Safety.

The Mississippi Municipal League and the Clarion Ledger newspaper selected the Picayune Police Department over many other medium to large departments across the state.

Picayune was given the award of excellence for an initiative that brought the community together to work toward a safer community.

Jim Luke started the partnership program when he was named chief of the department two years ago.
