Police Department

The Talladega Police Department strives to serve and protect our community each day.  Through diverse community engagement initiatives, we seek to build stronger relationships with residents in order to better protect lives and property, prevent and reduce crime, and maintain order. 


I keep the words “I CARE” displayed on a white board in my office as a constant reminder of this commitment to our residents and visitors. The letters represent our department’s guiding principles: Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence.  

Serving our community is an honor and a privilege. 

Sincerely,

Diane Thomas
