Laurens Police Department Prepares for the Relocation to Enhanced Facility  

October 1, 2023

The Laurens Police Department (LPD) is in the final stages of relocating to the newly renovated facility situated at 250 W. Laurens Street, Laurens, SC 29360.

Enhancements and Operational Hours
The new facility brings a host of enhancements to better serve the community. The operational hours for the front desk services, including public records and the Clerk of Court, are from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Additionally, walk-in services through the rear access are now available 24/7.

However, be advised that between 5:00 pm and 9:00 am, Monday to Sunday, on-site staff may not be present. The LPD has established a central dispatch system and will have a dedicated dispatcher available at the rear entry during the weekdays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. For after-hours assistance, a direct phone line to 911 and central dispatch will be provided inside the lobby. This feature is expected to be fully operational in about one week.

Anticipated Full Operation
They anticipate the Laurens Police Department to be fully operational from our new location in approximately one week.

The timeline for the relocation of the Clerk of Courts Office, City Judge, and court proceedings from City Hall to the new location at 250 W. Laurens Street, Laurens, remains uncertain at this time. However, they anticipate this transition to take place within the next two months.

“I am immensely grateful for the ongoing support and understanding our community has shown during this transitional period. Our new facility symbolizes a commitment to enhanced service, efficiency, and safety. We are eager to resume our duties and serve you diligently from our revitalized home,” said Keith P. Grounsell, Chief of Police, Laurens Police Department. “We look forward to welcoming you to our new and improved Laurens Police Department headquarters. Thank you for being an integral part of our community.”
