Welcome to your police department's website. Since September 4th 2007 we have worked very hard towards improving our Community Policing Program as well as strengthening our Community Watch Programs. Our website offers information about our department as well as helpful programs offered by our department. I would like to ask who witnesses anything out of the norm or sorts to please contact us immediately. There is nothing wrong with calling to let us know something seems to be out of place or just not right. We would rather respond and find there’s nothing wrong than not to respond only to learn at a later period in time one of our residents has lost a great deal of property due to a break in.
I would like remind everyone about our Volunteer’s in Policing Program (VIP’S) which was established in 2009 with the assistance of a grant through Citizens Corps. We are actively seeking volunteers who meet the criteria to serve as a volunteer for our police department. Volunteers may be asked to help perform non-enforcement duties to help free up officers who can then focus more on prevention and enforcement. Please contact Sgt. Sherrie Culpepper at (252) 726-2523 or Major Jeff Harvey at the same number if you are interested in our VIP’s program.
Remember we are here to serve and protect. If you have questions about services we provide (or may not provide) please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to listen and discuss concerns and ideas. We are always interested in your thoughts and ideas.
