Police Services


Police reports can be picked up Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, at the main Police Department located at 300 Ruth Street.  There is no charge for this.

Tickets can be paid at the Cumberland County Courthouse.  Waivers may be made in person before the clerk or magistrate in the county where the case is pending or online.


If you are going out of town or need your property checked on, a patrol officer can make a scheduled check of the property (residential or commercial.) These checks must be scheduled in advance. Please call or stop in the Police Department to learn more.


Community policing involves community involvement. If you would like a member of the Spring Lake Police Department to visit or speak at an event you are hosting or to tour the Police Department, please contact the Executive Assistant to the Police Chief to make your request. Please be sure to include the name of your organization, a contact person, the date of your request, the purpose of your request, the number in attendance and other specifics. While the SLPD tries to accommodate most requests,  it is dependent on staffing and the needs of the department and ongoing needs of the community.


To request a ride-a-long with a patrol officer, certain criteria must be met. To learn more and submit your request, contact the Patrol Lt. at (910) 436-0350. Age restrictions do apply.


SERVICES NOT PROVIDED BY THE SLPD… but frequently asked about

The Town of Spring Lake has an Interlocal Agreement with Cumberland County which sufficiently covers the needs of the Town as they relate to animal control. As part of this agreement, the Town’s Animal Control Ordinance was repealed and Cumberland County’s Animal Control Ordinance was adopted. The adopted ordinance has become part of the Spring Lake Code of Ordinances and should appear as part of the ordinances available online.

Currently, the Spring Lake Police Department does not offer fingerprinting services or issue gun permits.  Both of these services are offered through the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department.
(The Harnett County Sheriff’s Department offers these services as well. Links for these services can be found on the Harnett County Sheriff’s page located under “Area numbers and Links.”)
