Woodfin Police Department
Welcome to our webpage. As Chief of Police of the Town of Woodfin I take great pride in overseeing the day to day activities of one of the finest law enforcement organizations in the State of North Carolina.
In order to continue to provide the people of Woodfin with the level of service they have come to know and appreciate I need to hear directly from citizens both when their expectations are not met or when they are exceeded.
Our Department is responsible for maintaining the safety of nearly 7,000 residents and approximately 60 miles of public roads. In order to do that job effectively we need the assistance of our entire community.
Please assist me — and your Department — by taking the time to reach out when you suspect a problem in our community.
If I can ever be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact me at 828 253‑4889

In the event of an Emergency call 911 immediately.
In the event of a non-emergency police call, please phone us at 828 253‑4889, 24 hours a day to be connected with a police officer.
For the second year in a row Woodfin has been named one of the top 20 Safest Cities in North Carolina by The Safe Wise Report. Improving on last year’s position by moving up to the 14th spot from number 20 last year the Woodfin Police Department has been recognized for making the Town of Woodfin a safe place to live, work and play.

The only reason we're able to do that is because of the deep support from the citizens and our elected leadership."
