Message from the Chief

On behalf of the police officers and telecommunicators of the Black Mountain Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our website. This website is one of the many ongoing steps we are taking to demonstrate our department’s commitment, dedication, and professionalism to the community we serve. We wanted a place where citizens could learn more about the services offered by this agency, but more importantly, a place to improve the communication between the Black Mountain Police Department and the citizens we serve. We strongly believe that only through active communication and building strong partnerships within all areas of our community, can we maintain Black Mountain as a great place to live, work, and play. 

I have immense pride in our profession and I am a firm believer in surrounding oneself with exemplary people. With that said, I consider it a tremendous honor and privilege to lead such a professional group as the staff of the Black Mountain Police Department. I greatly appreciate the opportunity I have to work with our Board of Aldermen, town manager, town employees, business owners, citizens, and the members of the Black Mountain Police Department. My goal is to ensure we provide the very best service possible to our town and its citizens. 

All of our efforts are designed to this end; we are always working to better serve everyone who lives, works, or visits the Town of Black Mountain. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me via email or by calling 828-419-9350. I look forward to working with all of you to build a stronger police-community partnership for a better and safer community.
