North Meck Crime Stopper's TIP line offers citizens the ability to provide local police with information regarding crimes and criminal activity in the north Mecklenburg area.
Calls to the TIP line 704-896-STOP (7867) are not routed through the
normal police dispatch system and caller I.D. is not active on this
line. Calls are received by a voice recorder or police personnel,
processed by local detectives and distributed, as necessary, to the
appropriate local agency. The TIP line is available 24 hours a day.
Callers to the TIP line do not have to leave a name or contact
information. You can also text drug tips to 704-249-5070.
Cornelius provides special "security checks" for residences and businesses -- at no charge -- upon request. Security checks are typically used to help insure the safety of a home or business when the owner is out of town for a known period of time, such as during a vacation. Police will periodically visit the home or office during the designated period to make sure the integrity of the premises has been maintained.
RAIDS Online has been developed by BAIR Analytics to help law enforcement agencies provide the public with valuable information about recent crime activity in their neighborhood. Cornelius has joined Raidsonline.com to assist in reducing crime through a better-informed citizenry. Creating more self-reliance among community members is a great benefit to community oriented policing efforts everywhere and has been proven effective in combating crime.
False Alarm Reduction Program
In an effort to reduce the number of
calls for false alarms, the Town of Cornelius Board of Commissioners
passed an ordinance requiring any business or residence with an alarm
(monitored or unmonitored) to have a permit. Alarm registration will
begin March 1, 2013.
