CS_VanThe Ahoskie Police Department is primarily concerned with the safety of its citizens, not only their personal safety, but the safety of their property as well. From this concern, a number of crime prevention programs have been developed to reduce the potential of town residents becoming crime victims.

The Ahoskie Police Department’s Community Relations Detail is responsible for the creation and administration of crime prevention programs that are offered to the public. Officers offer services such as fingerprinting children, speaking with community organizations, speaking at area schools about “stranger danger” and drug awareness, plus many more interesting topics.

Officers from the detail are available to make public presentations for organizations and community groups throughout the town on a variety of topics. To arrange for a Crime Prevention Officer to speak to your group, contact the Ahoskie Police Department at (252) 332-5011. Please make your request at least two weeks in advance of the time you would like the presentation.
