community resource, D.A.R.E. & School officers

Along with assisting the school system, our Community Resource Officer (CRO) is available to guide businesses, churches, and neighborhoods with safety concerns, threat assessments and watch programs. The CRO is involved in community events and is the department's Instructor for the D.A.R.E. program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), teaching all Lenoir elementary and middle schools.  School Resource Officers (SRO) work in local schools to assist in providing safe learning environments and fostering positive relationships with students, staff, and parents.  

Volunteer Chaplaincy

The Chaplain Program of the Lenoir Police Department began in 1994. It was Chief Jack Warlick's desire to involve area ministers in a volunteer program through the department that would minister to the community and department personnel.

Each day, law enforcement officers are faced with potentially dangerous situations. They must make split-second decisions that are just and right. Many times they need to express frustrations and problems to someone who fully understands. Lenoir Police Chaplains are trained to listen with empathy, advise calmly and offer the appropriate assistance.

On call 24 hours a day, Lenoir Police Chaplains stand ready to respond. It is their desire to be a catalyst of reconciliation, bringing God's love to the relationship between staff and officers, between the law enforcement agency and the community. This care is offered to all people, regardless of race, sex, gender, creed, or religion.
