Welcome to the web home of the Siler City Police Department.  Besides being the largest town in Chatham County, Siler City has established itself as one of the best places to live in North Carolina.


Family oriented, with good schools, friendly, caring citizens, are good words that describe our Citizens.


To be successful, a police department should reflect the community that it serves.  We work hard so you will know who your neighborhood officers are and know that these officers are available to serve you, not only in times of need, but on average days when you just might have a question.  We are going to work to keep our crime rate one of the lowest in the State, and we need your help.  This means staying active in your neighborhood associations, neighborhood watches, adopt a street group, church watches, etc.  We need you to stay alert to issues in your neighborhood and call the police when you see suspicious activity.


Together, with the men and women of this great organization, we can and will make a difference in the “City of Friendly People”.  Our goal is to serve our citizens.  Thanks for stopping by, and visit us often.
