Community Services

Community services consist mainly of dealing with quality of life issues in the community. From special events in the city such as Parades, Street Closers and Special Assemblies, to assisting with annual events like "Live after Five," "The Family Fourth Celebration" and "National Night Out," we help in planning, security and providing a police presence. While working closely with community leaders, we provide training and support for Community Watch groups.

Citizens Police Academy

Semiannually, we conduct the Lumberton Police Department, Citizens Police Academy. This consists of inviting up to 20 citizens in for a 12 week course designed to introduce them to the operations of the police Department Upon graduation, they are eligible to join the Citizens Police Academy Auxiliary Association which provides services to the department.

By providing these and other services, we strive to enhance the quality of life for our citizens and help to insure Lumberton remains a great place to live.
