Establishing the Department
The Town of Mint Hill was in a unique position of establishing its own police department during 2003. Since 1995, the town contracted with the City of Charlotte for police services. Prior to 1995, Mecklenburg County Police provided police services for the town. On September 26, 2002, the Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to establish the Mint Hill Police Department. The department initially consisted of 22 sworn police officers, 5 police supervisors, an administrative assistant, and a police chief. The department had 11 vehicles.
Currently, the Mint Hill Police Department serves approximately 20,000 residents. There are approximately 7,500 homes and nearly 600 businesses. Over 100 businesses currently exist in Mint Hill. Five schools are currently located within Mint Hill. The current city limits consists of 25 square miles. Interstate 485 opened, which has five exits that are located within / leading to Mint Hill.
Employees & Officers
As of November 15, 2011, the police department had 34 full-time sworn employees, 2 administrative positions, and 4 volunteers. The department now consists of four administrative police supervisors (chief, captain, patrol lieutenant, and support services lieutenant), 4 patrol sergeants, four detectives (one detective-sergeant, two detectives, and one narcotics detective), 3 traffic officers (one traffic sergeant and two traffic officers), 3 school-resource officers (SRO), 16 patrol officers, 2 administrative personnel, 2 volunteer police chaplains, and 7 volunteers. Dispatch service is provided by Matthews Police Department.
The Mint Hill Police Department employees possess a wide variety of college degrees and additional educational classes. Overall 54% of our work force has an associates degree or higher. Of that overall percentage, 31% have Associates degrees, 26% have Bachelors degrees, and 6% have a Masters Degree. In addition, 20% of our personnel are currently pursuing Associates, Bachelors or Master Degrees.
The Mint Hill Police Department now has 31 police vehicles, a police ATV, 3 military vehicles, an enclosed utility trailer, a mobile light-tower / generator, and a radar / speed-monitor trailer. Marked police vehicles are equipped with radar, in car video-camera systems, defibrillators (AED), mobile-data terminals with modems, stop-sticks (tire deflation devices), and 800 MHz mobile radios.
All uniformed officers are trained and issued a TASER (less than lethal) device. Each officer is trained in CPR and AED (defibrillator) device use.
To better serve the people of Mint Hill, the Mint Hill Police Department implemented a police dog (K-9) program and purchased two male German Shepherd dogs. Both police dogs are dual-purpose working dogs (patrol and narcotics).

Remember Their Sacrifice
Many of our employees are committed to serving the public in many ways. Several of our officers are currently members of or have served in the armed services. Since the start up of the Mint Hill Police Department in 2003, three of our officers have been deployed and served in Afghanistan or Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Many of our officers serve as volunteer fire and EMS personnel for their communities, and several officers serve as church leaders or teachers as well.
The police and citizens work together to solve problems.
