Holly Springs has repeatedly appeared at or near the top of safest town in North Carolina rankings.
Most recently, our town was tops in the Triangle and third statewide in Home Security Advisor’s 2019 Guide to N.C.’s 50 Safest Cities for populations of at least 10,000.
The Holly Springs Police Department is committed to community outreach. Police want residents to call when they see something suspicious. Assigning resource officers to all schools helps build trust with students starting in elementary school.
The Town’s investment in police pay, training and facilities has enabled the department to recruit officers with increasing levels of education and experience. On average, new hires have three years of college and more than nine years of professional experience.
Staffing levels enable the Police Department to be proactive instead of merely responding to calls. The concept of community policing touches on the entire force and not just the outreach team.
