keep dilworth safe
Dilworth residents have the enviable status of a low
crime rate in one of Charlotte’s most urban
neighborhoods. Neighborhood policing, coupled
with citizen involvement, make Dilworth one of the
safest places to live, work, or play in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
Preventing a crime
is one of the most effective ways to fight crime -
and it's simple!
Remember to lock your doors and your cars.
We don't want criminals to think of Dilworth as a place of opportunity.
Remove the opportunity, prevent the crime.
Constant vigilance and sharing information between police and residents reduce opportunities for criminals. Dilworth participates in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s
Neighborhood Watch program in which neighbors look out for neighbors. A police officer attends each Dilworth Community Association meeting for the purpose of reporting crime trends and to speak privately to anyone about current crime concerns.
Citizens have online access to a number of websites relating to crime in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. One of the most useful is www.cmpd.org. which contains everything from current 911 calls, a directory of all police services and crime mapping for criminal activity and accident hotspots.
Share information with neighbors. Nextdoor Dilworth is a great way to do this! It's a private online community network. Join here.
