​PPD Plans National Night Out 

​July 21, 2017 - Neighborhoods throughout Pelham are invited to join the Pelham Police Department for a National Night Out community event. It is scheduled for Thursday, October 5, 2017 and will be held at the Publix located at 365 Huntley Parkway from 6:00p.m. - 8:00p.m.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The goal is to make our neighborhoods safer by:

  • Heightening crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generating support for and participation in anticrime efforts
  • Strengthening police-community partnerships
  • Sending a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized & fighting back

Several agencies and organizations are partnering with us for our inaugural event including the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office and the Pelham Fire Department. Compact 2020, the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force and the Drug Enforcement Administration will also be represented.

Our Police Explorer Post and its leaders will be on-hand to engage young people interested in a career in law enforcement.


The Pelham Police Department is proud to announce its partnership with Nextdoor, the private social network for neighborhoods.

​PPD Partners with Nextdoor

June 20, 2017 - Nextdoor is free for the residents and the city. Each Pelham neighborhood has its own private website, accessible only to residents who live in that neighborhood. The Pelham Police Department will be able to post important information, such as crime alerts, to Nextdoor sites within the city.

It also allows members of the community to report criminal activity and other concerns directly to the police department.  It should not, however, be used in the event of an emergency.

“Nextdoor will help create a stronger and safer community that we call home, and we look forward to building relationships with the people we serve and protect,” said Chief Larry Palmer.

It’s important to note, our agency will not be able to access the residents’ websites, contact information, or content. 

Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit Nextdoor and enter their address. If Nextdoor is available in their area, they can immediately sign up. If a Nextdoor website has not yet been established in their area, residents are invited to apply to bring Nextdoor to their neighborhood.
