Office of the Chief

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

Our current staffing authorizations include 26 sworn officers and 2 civilian employees.  Located just miles south of the City of Charlotte, we serve and protect over 10,000 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, and report suspicious behavior or criminal activity.

We are proud of our achievements related to Community Policing, National Night Out, and full-time assignment of School Resource Officers. The true bread and butter 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.
