A MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
Welcome to the City of Locust……a place known by the motto “A City With A Soul”. At the Locust Police Department we honor that motto by taking great pride and diligence in our thorough efforts providing the greatest service and protection to our city residents and visitors to the absolute best of our abilities while emphasizing a focus on community policing.
We take the enforcement of North Carolina statutes very seriously and always utilize a firm but fair approach to those who violate those laws inside our city. At the same time, we are part of the Locust community and we take an equally extensive approach in building relationships by knowing and working with the businesses and residents of our city to achieve the mutually beneficial result of safety and a wonderful place to live, work, and play!
My personal motto for our officers is “Always do good work, and always do it the right way”. We achieve that result by relentlessly pursuing justice for victims of criminal activity, firm and fair enforcement of laws and statutes, and by treating everyone we encounter as respectfully as possible with the highest regard for their ethical treatment at all times.
I hope that you enjoy all this wonderful city has to offer……either as a resident or a visitor, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever have a question or concern. We are so glad that you are here!
Jeff B. Shew
