As the Chief of Police, when applicable, we will provide and share our ongoing efforts with the community in order to maintain and build public trust.

The Newton Police Department will continue to partner with our community and maintain the confidence of those whom we serve through the daily efforts of our entire staff. We will conduct ourselves in a professional manner while enforcing state and federal laws as well as local ordinances. Our staff will treat everyone whom we come in contact with dignity and respect without prejudice or favor to any specific group or individual.

Through the public’s trust and support, the Newton Police Department will provide a safe environment for our community to thrive. I am proud of the women and men of the Newton Police Department and feel fortunate to be able to serve this community alongside them as we work in partnership with our citizens to keep this city safe.

Please feel free to contact me or any one of our staff members at 828-465-7430 or come by the Newton Police Department located at 411 N. Main Ave., Newton, NC 28658 to discuss any police matters or concerns.
