Members of the Wilson Police Department have continued a program they initiated last year that was affectionately titled "Toe Jam". The program is designed to collect new and gently used shoes that can be distributed to individuals as needed.

The program is a partnership between Wilson Police Department, Elm City Elementary School and BB&T. Through this partnership, there were approximately 200 pairs of shoes collected today. See MoreSee Less

The Wilson Police Department would like to congratulate the individuals who graduated from the Wilson Police Department Citizen Academy tonight.

These citizens attended 12 weeks of class taught by different officers within the agency. Topics ranged from community policing (which is a cornerstone of the Wilson Police Department) to Special Response Team and canine team demonstrations. They were provided the opportunity to see the effects of impaired driving first hand by operating golf carts through a cone course while wearing "beer googles" that simulate impairment, as well as particpating in training scenarios that required them to make decisions about application of force in those situations.

We hope to continue to partnership with our new alumni in the future. See MoreSee Less
