Crime Prevention Unit
The Crime Prevention Section's role is to be a county-wide resource in furthering the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's mission of building "problem-solving partnerships with our citizens to prevent the next crime and enhance the quality of life throughout our community."  We accomplish this by focusing on our unit priorities of providing information and resources needed to implement crime prevention programs and initiatives.
Unit Priorities:

Crime Prevention

Our function is to examine the pattern of attitudes and behaviors directed both at reducing the threat of crime and enhancing the sense of safety and security, to positively influence the quality of life in our society and help develop environments where crime cannot flourish. 

  • Plan, develop and evaluate crime prevention programs that not only target crime trends but quality of life and perception of crime issues in the community.
  • Develop and deliver crime prevention educational training department wide.
  • Remain current on crime prevention issues and trends through continual education
  • Facilitate all crime prevention requests to the appropriate departmental divisions and sections
  • Development, maintenance and administration of all crime prevention information and resources needed by the department to conduct informative, professional crime prevention programs
