The River Bend Police Department provides 24-hour coverage, seven days a week to provide timely response to emergency calls and proactive policing designed to keep our community safe.
Our relatively small staff provides the same level of service as larger departments including traffic enforcement, criminal investigations, bike patrol, and town ordinance enforcement. We also take part in joint enforcement efforts with other agencies in our area by participating in a three county drug task force and a county wide Governor’s Highway Safety Program task force. The Police also offer a vacant house check service and are proactive in maintaining a presence in our business district.
The work of the Police professionals is supplemented by the hardworking volunteers of the River Bend Community Watch. For more information, or to join this group, you can contact Police Chief Sean Joll. River Bend also has a functional Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). For more information about this group, you can contact the CERT liaison, Officer Andrew Borner.
It is the mission of the River Bend Police Department to deliver professional, effective services, fairly and ethically, in order to prevent crime, control crime, and enhance the overall quality of life for our citizens and visitors. We hold ourselves to the highest standard of conduct while on duty serving our citizens. We seek to improve the quality of life of our citizens through a community partnership based on respect, honesty, trust, compassion, fairness and understanding while upholding the laws of the United States and North Carolina Constitutions.
