Crime Prevention

Community interaction provides the framework for the Clinton Police Department's crime prevention effort.  Preventing crime demands a citizen and police integrated and coordinated response.  This process includes education and police services that take proactive approaches.  For more information about crime prevention, go to NC DPS:Crime Prevention.

Property Registration
The Clinton Police Department has a property registration program for bicycles and electronic devices like laptops and video games.  Registration can be done by bringing the item to the Police Department where office staff will photograph the item and enter the make, model, and serial number into the department's record system.  For additional information or for answers to questions about the process call the Clinton Police Department at (910) 592-3105.

Vacation Security Checks/Escorts
Home security checks are offered to citizens who leave for vacation and want the police to check on their residence in their absence.  Citizens wanting this service will need to go to the Clinton Police Department at 222 Lisbon Street, to fill out a Residence Check Form.

Security escorts are provided to businesses making bank deposits for their business.  Escorts may be obtained by calling (910) 592-1151.  An officer will respond to the business and then follow the representative to the bank while s/he makes the deposit.
