The Abbeville Police Department strongly embraces the philosophy of Community Policing in all its daily operations and functions. Community Policing is based upon a partnership between the police and the community whereby the police and the community share responsibility for identifying, reducing, eliminating and preventing problems that impact community safety and order. By working together, the police and the community can reduce the fear and incidence of crime and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods citywide. In this effort, the community and police must work as partners to identify and prioritize the problems of crime and disorder and share the responsibility for the development and implementation of proactive problem-solving strategies to address identified issues. The strategies used will prove successful because they mobilize the efforts and resources of the police, the community and local government.
Our Mission – Safeguard freedom by preserving life and property, protecting the constitutional rights of individuals, maintain order and encourage respect for the rule of law by proper enforcement thereof.
Our Strategy – Reduce the opportunity for the commission of crime by implementing effective crime prevention strategies, fully investigating crimes when they occur and expeditiously apprehending criminal offenders.

For your convenience, we have compiled a list of items that may be picked up by the City on the trash route for limbs and debris. Materials going to the landfill must be sorted into two categories. The City has to follow the State of Alabama rules for debris going to the Henry County landfill. Failure to comply with these rules can mean fines of $15,000 or more. The Henry County Landfill is a Construction and Debris landfill only. No garbage, paper trash or rubbish will be taken to this landfill.
Construction Debris: Rock, limbs, leaves, dirt, concrete, trees, clothes, card board boxes, non treated lumber, tires, bed mattress, pillows, furniture, shingles, fiberglass boat (stripped of all metal and accessories), sheet rock, books and files, flexible duct work, plastic not contaminated by food, medical, and/or hazardous chemicals, oil, or paint.
White Goods/Metal Goods – appliances such as stoves, washers, refrigerators, sheet metal, fencing, wire, copper, aluminum, tin, cast iron, lawn mower, etc. All metal must be stripped (example: tires must be off rims) ( The Landfill cannot take hot water heaters, electronics, paint, paint cans, treated lumber or batteries, light poles, no electronics, canned or wrapped food, food particles, PVC glue, adhesive glue, florescent light bulbs, household trash, medical waste.
If you have dirty, hard plastic such as buckets, electronics, paint cans, or similar items, they can be put out with your regular household garbage for pickup. Please remember that Construction & Debris items are picked up by the flat bed truck or the knuckle boom truck on the specific route you live on. These items must be separated from regular household garbage. Failure to separate them will result in the items not being picked up.
Household garbage is picked up weekly on your regular route. You also have the option of taking your trash/garbage directly to the Southeast Alabama Solid Waste Transfer Station located on Highway 431 North towards Eufaula. Please help us hold down costs by keeping trash and garbage sorted and separated. This allows us to provide more efficient and cost effective services to you. Please call the office at 585.6444 if you need further assistance.
Holiday Pickup: The City has put into affect a new holiday pickup schedule as of January 2011. Garbage will now be picked up the day after your regularly schedule pickup day when it falls on a holiday. For example: If your regular pickup day is Monday and it is a holiday, your garbage will be picked up on Tuesday. All other days will be as scheduled.
Leaves and Limbs: Leaves and limbs are picked up on a revolving cycle throughout the city. Once leaves and limbs are picked up during a given week, the truck does not return until the next week. Leaves and limbs must be left in front of your house, behind the curb and not on the street or across the street.
The Abbeville Municipal Airport (0j0) is home to a single, paved runway of 3,000 feet. Currently, there are five hangers, but no fueling opportunities. The airport does have automated lights for night landings, new lighting and electrical components. With the assistance of Alabama ALDOT Aeronautics and the FAA, we are in the process of completing a multi year expansion of the airport to a 5,000′ runway, taxiway, fencing and hangers. Space is currently available for interested parties who would like to lease an area to construct private hangers on.
