Welcome To The Southern Shores Police Department


Following the Mayor's declaration of a State of Emergency, the Town of Southern Shores is taking proactive steps to protect the health and well-being of our citizens in the face of growing cases of the coronavirus COVID-19 both around the nation and here in North Carolina.

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020 and continuing until further notice, government operations for the Town of Southern Shores will be modified in the following manner:

The Police Department Building will be closed to the public and all non-emergent business shall be conducted via phone, email, fax, or other virtual means to the greatest extent possible.
