For Your Safety

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Community Service

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department is actively involved in the quality of life in the community. Problem solving is the backbone of the department's approach to policing to prevent the next crime and increase community safety. We have the contacts and resources that will help build and protect our community. Below you will find a list of highlighted programs that CMPD offers. We also offer a Citizen Guide [​english version | spanish version​​] which provides contact information for many resources available in this region.

Members of the department meet frequently with business, neighborhood and homeowner associations to address local issues. The problem solving philosophy also allows the officer to coordinate directly with other government agencies to address community issues... from pot holes to illegal dumps.
