CMPD Will Continue to Service Unincorporated Steele Creek

(April 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.

The County 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 County Agrees to Have CMPD Continue to Provide Police Services in Unincorporated Steele Creek

On the map below, the pink areas are within the City of Charlotte and receive city services. The area in white is unincorporated and will continue to receive police services from CMPD. The area in blue cross hatch is serviced by CMPD's Steele Creek Division, located on the corner of S Tryon Street and Westinghouse Boulevard. It includes the Lake Wylie Patrol.
