Tuesday March 23, 2010 | Charlotte & Mecklenburg Police History

March 22, 2010 at 11:05 am | Posted in Coming Up | 2 Comments

Most organizations have highs and lows throughout their histories, especially when they’ve been around for over a century, and the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department is not exempt from that. Even with the more turbulent news of late, the department’s nearly 150 year history is one where duty, adaptation to changes in technology and culture, and challenges posed by criminals are prominent throughout. We’ll meet the author of a new book about the full history of the CMPD and hear about an accompanying exhibit coming up at the Charlotte Museum of History.

  1. The City of Charlotte exist today due to the sacrifices made of the people who served and are serving her today. I wish I had a positive comment about the police administration.. Oh okay I have one They cover their tracks well.

  2. I live in a condo in Settlers Place which is the old NC Medical College on 6th and Church St. I am compiling a history of our building.

    Can you give me more information about the medical students who used to rob the graves in Elmwood Cemetary and their run in with the police? Information such as: how many students did it, for how long, what did they recover, any arrests etc.
