In the Community

The UNC Charlotte Police Department is comprised of dedicated officers committed to the principles of community-oriented policing.  We support the development of community partnerships resulting in problem resolution both on and off campus. 

We intend to:  

  • Facilitate collaborative efforts between police, students, faculty, staff and community partners in support and promotion of community based problem solving.
  • Function as a team contributing to the creation and dissemination of information. 
  • Provide effective, efficient and equitable delivery of police services.
  • Serve as an informational resource as it relates to community/problem oriented policing strategies for the campus community.
