CMPD Will Continue to Service Unincorporated Steele
3, 2018) Mecklenburg County is replacing the current Law Enforcement
Service District, which covers all of unincorporated Mecklenburg
County, with separate districts for each of the extra-territorial
jurisdictions (ETJs) in the county. CMPD will continue to service
the Charlotte ETJ, which includes the unincorporated areas of Steele Creek.
The Mecklenburg Board of
County Commissioners has scheduled a public hearing on the new
service districts for Tuesday, May
1 at 6:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the agenda allows, in the
Meeting Chamber of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center
located at 600 East Fourth Street in Charlotte. See
Notice of Public Hearing.
Currently CMPD services the entire unincorporated area of
Mecklenburg County. If the new Law Enforcement Service Districts are
approved, the Cornelius Police Department will service the Cornelius
ETJ, the Huntersville Police Department will service the Hutersville
ETJ (excluding the McGuire Nuclear Plant), and the Pineville Police Department will service the Pineville
ETJ. CMPD will service the Charlotte, Davidson, and Mint Hill ETJs.
Steele Creek Division will continue to service incorporated and
unincorporated areas of Steele Creek. The distict tax rate (currently $0.2146
per $100 valuation) will not change. See
Q&A Regarding Proposed Law Enforcement Service Districts.
Commissioners approved a resolution last October to continue having
CMPD (and not the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office) service the Charlotte ETJ. The current proposal will implement
that decision. See
