Citizen's Police Academy: September 10th, 2016

The Carrboro Police Department will be running our next Citizen's Police Academy on September 10th, 2016 at the Carrboro Police Department.  I'll be the lead instructor during the academy and numerous other officers will be on hand to assist with different blocks of instruction.  The basic format for the Citizen's Police Academy is listed below:

  • Classroom lecture on the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, law enforcement operations & procedures and vital department statistics.
  • Hands-on activities including fingerprint lifting, K-9 demonstrations, vehicle demonstrations, etc.
  • Scenarios involving roleplayers where participants will get to act as police officers and respond to calls for services based on real calls we've responded to.

Lunch will be provided as part of the Academy.

Carrboro Police responding to citizen complaints of speeding, unsafe driving

Through citizen complaints, we've recently identified some problem areas where speeding and unsafe driving issues have been reported to us.

  • Davie Rd, a 25 MPH zone (speeding particularly between Neville Rd and Fidelity St)
  • Rogers Rd, a 35 MPH zone
  • Carol St & Lorraine St, a 25 MPH zone (speeding, running stop signs, etc.)
  • N Greensboro St near Shelton St, a 20 MPH zone (speeding, failure to yield to pedestrians, etc.)
  • Morningside Dr at Spring Valley Rd, a 25 MPH zone

I'll be working with several patrol officers over the next few weeks to really focus on these areas.  If you wish to report problem areas or request additional services, there are a number of ways to contact us.

Carrboro Police Department is now on Orange Politics

Officer D here; this is my first post on Orange Politics!

For those of you who don't know me, I'm a member of the Carrboro Police Department's Community Services Division.  One of my primary assignments is to create, organize and complete Community Oriented Policing (COPS) initiatives.  Our current major COPS initiatives are the Police Department Open House (next event--June 22nd from 6:30 PM to 8 PM) and the Citizen's Police Academy (September 10th, all day).  Current ongoing initiatives are Coffee with the Cops, Kava with the Cops, Neighborhood Forums, Pizza with the Police and other similar events.

I'll be periodically posting officer profiles, announcing major events and attempting to keep people posted on what's going on with the Carrboro Police Department!
