The City of Vicksburg and the Vicksburg Municipal Court are proud to announce that court fines and traffic tickets can now be paid online or by phone.

On December 13, 14, 15, 2012, a team of assessors from the Mississippi Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (MSLEAC) will be conducting an on-site assessment at the Vicksburg Police Department to ensure compliance with the Mississippi State Standards and The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) Standards. Law enforcement agencies seeking to be accredited by MSLEAC and recognized by CALEA are required to comply with 123 professional standards in order to achieve state accredited and CALEA recognition status.

The Vicksburg Police Department received a few concerns about the Christmas parade not having enough barricades. The Main Street program received complaints from downtown merchants that the use of full barricades hurt their business. Therefore, the VPD was asked to not place full barricades along the Washington Street area, but to only place them at intersections, in order to not interfere with downtown patrons.  We regret any inconveniences this may have caused.  Please have a Safe and Happy Holiday season...
