Mission

In the spirit of service, the Raleigh Police Department exists to preserve and improve the quality of life, instill peace

and protect property through unwavering attention to our duties in partnership with the community.

Department Overview

The Police Department works in partnership with the community to identify and address conditions that give rise to

crime. The Department employs a policing approach that emphasizes the importance of maintaining a full range of

enforcement priorities, including quality-of-life issues and violations that breed more serious crime. Through the

dedicated service of officers and civilians, district policing, innovative programs, effective technology use, and

enhanced relationships between citizens and the police, the Department is confronting crime in Raleigh and

making the City an even better place to live, work, visit and conduct business.

Additional information regarding the department may be obtained by contacting Cassandra Deck-Brown, Chief of

Police, at (919) 996-3385 or via e-mail at

Cassandra.Deck-Brown@raleighnc.gov .
