The Selma Police Department is proud to be a leader among law enforcement agencies in Johnston County. We believe that we contribute to a greater quality of life by protecting the people and property in our community. Our work towards decreasing crime should encourage you, as a citizen or visitor, to feel safe and well protected in Selma.
In my years working with the Selma Police Department I have seen many changes and advancements within our Department. It is with much pride that I commit myself to continuing the patterns of growth and success through the coming years. My Department is proactive in that we are working to stop crime before it starts. With the recent implementation of a Community Policing Program, our Officers are meeting more people in the community, establishing a high level of trust with residents, and presenting themselves as an essential presence in the ongoing activities of the Town of Selma.
My position is one of service to the community. If there are needs you see that are not being met by the Police Department, please let me know. If there are services that you would like us to offer, call me so that we can discuss the options available. My goal is to lead a proactive Department that is a vital part of the community that it serves.
