Welcome and thank you for visiting the Wilson Police Department website.  The members of the Wilson Police Department are extremely proud and honored to serve the citizens and visitors of Wilson, North Carolina.  We are proud of our dedicated employees and volunteers who strive to provide the highest quality of police services to the citizens and visitors of our great city.  We work closely with our schools, businesses, and residents to reduce crime and improve the quality of life.  We are dedicated to community-oriented policing and problem solving.   We operate on a foundation of service, honesty, accountability, responsibility, professionalism, and education.
