CMPD Donation Funds Grier Heights Bike Patrol

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Providence Division recently received a generous donation from donors with the “Self Help” organization and a long time resident of the Grier Height’s Community. This gesture has enabled the Providence Division the ability to purchase two bicycles, uniforms and equipment that will be used to patrol the community of Grier Heights.

This effective approach to patrolling has proven to provide for much greater accessibility to different areas of the neighborhood and allows police officers a much more personal level of engagement with neighbors. It gives the officers the ability to be much more proactive in their work by developing relationships with the community members they serve.
