I am so honored and privileged to serve the Town of Edenton and the enthusiastic women and men of the Edenton Police Department. Serving in law enforcement is one of the noblest professions, that has fantastic rewards and enormous accountability.
My philosophy and vision are to bridge the gap between the community and the police department by adhering to our department's core values, which are Respect, Fairness, Honesty, Loyalty, and Integrity.
The Edenton Police Department includes all these core values through the accomplishment of our mission statement:
