Office of the Chief

On behalf of the men and women of the Tega Cay Police Department, welcome to our website!

Located just miles south of the City of Charlotte, we serve and protect over 12,000 citizens. Tega Cay is a growing, vibrant community that cares a great deal for its neighbors. Our highest priority is to employ 21st Century policing technology and tactics without shedding our "neighborhood cop" identity.  To do this, we strive to hire and retain the best people available.

We always want to remind the Community that safety doesn’t come without community investment. It’s every citizen’s job to care for the community, make safe choices and report suspicious behavior or criminal activity.

We are focused on our goals of Community Policing and engaging with our citizens.  To learn more about our community programs click here. The true bread and butter of our department still lies with the day-to-day functions of our patrol and detective staff, whose primary focus is crime prevention, problem-solving, and when necessary, apprehension and arrest.
