The Savannah Police Department is under the command of Chief Michael Pitts. The department is made up of 23 sworn officers assigned to various duties within the department, 2 civilian personnel, and a narcotics K9. Our K9 officer is a certified narcotics detection canine, which can detect the odor of illegal narcotics within confined spaces.
The Savannah Police Department is a pro-active police organization and strives to be active in the Savannah community. Our community policing programs include, but are certainly not limited to:
- a prescription drug return
- senior citizen safety classes
- active shooter preparedness classes

- Monthly Coffee with a Cop events
- many other community-based classes or programs
The SPD strives to be present in the community and reinforces their commitment to pro-active policing through their business check program. Members of the SPD can frequently be seen out in businesses within Savannah performing security checks, talking with patrons, and fostering positive interactions between the police and the public.
