The Eatonton Police Department, located at 214 West Marion Street, houses the police headquarters, the City jail, and the Municipal Court. Our crew of 29 police officers handles about 2,000 traffic citations per year and about 1,000 other incidents. Using revenues from the Special Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST), uniformity has been achieved in our fleet of police vehicles so that visitors and residents, alike, will know that the Eatonton Police force is on the job. The silver/gray fleet is boldly emblazoned with “Eatonton Police”.

The Eatonton Fire Department has both a paid and a volunteer force located at 214 West Marion Street beside the Police Department. Our crews can be seen training each month throughout the City. By using a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, or SPLOST, each firefighter in the City of Eatonton’s fire fighting force has been outfitted with all new turn-out gear and new breathing apparatus. Additionally we have added to our fleet of fire trucks. To go along with the new E-ONE pumper engine already in service, we have been able to add another E-ONE pumper and a 65 foot ladder truck that is more than able to reach the top of the tallest structure in town or out in the county.
