Center Point may be a small town, but we think "big" in the services we deliver to our residents.
We are just minutes away from two highly respected hospitals - St. Vincent's East and University of Alabama at Birmingham Medical Center. Both have received state and national recognition and UAB is home to some of the top medical programs in the country.
The city's 17 thousand residents are served by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department and Center Point Fire and Rescue.
The Center Point Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency medical services for a 60 square mile area of Northeastern Jefferson County in Central Alabama and responds to more than 45,000 calls each year.
The Jefferson County Sheriffs Department is one of the largest and most modern departments in the state with 120 civilian employees and 505 sworn officers. The city also contracts four additional sheriff's deputies to provide additional coverage and enforce city ordinances.
In 2007, US News and World Report recognized Center Point as being one of the Top 10 Cities to Retire to.
