The Mount Holly Police Department would like to send our sincerest gratitude to the student athletes of Belmont Abbey College for the “Message in a Bottle” campaign they created. These outstanding students wrote letters to Fire, Police, Medic, and Military First Responders and then put them into a bottle for us. We are grateful to work with such a loving and supportive community and these letters mean more to us than you will ever know. Thank you again.

We wanted to inform everyone about a scam we have received information about. In this scam, you may receive a telephone call from someone claiming to be with Microsoft and informing you that your computer has viruses. You could also receive a "Pop-Up" message on your computer claiming the same. The following information was taken from Microsoft.com: "Cybercriminals don't just send fraudulent email messages. They might call you on the telephone and claim to be from Microsoft. They might also setup websites with persistent pop-ups displaying fake warning messages and a phone number to call and get the “issue” fixed. They might offer to help solve your computer problems or sell you a software license. Once they have access to your computer, they can do the following: Trick you into installing malicious software that could capture sensitive data, such as online banking user names and passwords. They might also then charge you to remove this software. Convince you to visit legitimate websites to download software that will allow them to take control of your computer remotely and adjust settings to leave your computer vulnerable. Request credit card information so they can bill you for phony services. Direct you to fraudulent websites and ask you to enter credit card and other personal or financial information there. “Remember, Microsoft will never proactively reach out to you to provide unsolicited PC or technical support. Any communication we have with you must be initiated by you.”"

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Parade today. We just wanted to send out a friendly reminder for everyone to expect heavy traffic in and around the Downtown area from approximately 4:00pm-7:00pm. Please plan accordingly for your commute.

We had the opportunity to meet with the clergy of a large majority of our houses of worship in Mount Holly. We invited the clergy to meet with us and discuss ideas on how to make the houses of worship in our community safer for each congregation. This meeting was very informative and we feel like we came away with a stronger partnership with the faith leaders of our community. A sincere thank you goes to all of the clergy for their attendance and consideration in this matter.

The Mount Holly Police Department is now accepting applications for the position of Police Officer. If you have any questions please call Sergeant Monroe at (704) 822-2937.

We would like to give our sincerest thanks to all Veterans for their service as we celebrate this Veterans Day.

We had the privilege of hanging out with our new buddy Alex today. Alex is a fourth grader at Ida Rankin and he won a raffle at their fall festival last week. This raffle was for "Time with an Officer". We were the real winners in this because we were able to spend time with Alex for almost an hour and we learned he is an outstanding young man. We ate lunch with him, gave him a custom MHPD shirt (made by Graphic Hound Studios),and then we took him to Queen Bee Bakery on our UTV for a cupcake. Thanks Alex for letting us hang out with you!

Saturday, October 28, 2017 is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. If your medicine cabinet at home is crowded with leftover medicines, it can be a very dangerous situation. If you keep those drugs around, they might fall into the wrong hands. Don't let it be your children or grandchildren! We ask that you do not flush them down the toilet, because they will pollute the water you use daily. Bring them to the Mount Holly Police Department instead. The Operation Medicine Cabinet drop box is located in the lobby of the Mount Holly Police Department and you can access the drop box 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Thank you all for your consideration in this issue.

We want to make our community aware of this test Piedmont Natural Gas is conducting on the pipeline tomorrow. This photograph was taken of a flare stack similar to the one being used tomorrow. “Piedmont Natural Gas advises community of routine pipeline operations Safety is Piedmont’s No. 1 priority WHAT: As a part of its ongoing work to provide safe, reliable natural gas service, Piedmont Natural Gas will perform routine pipeline operations on U.S. National Whitewater Center property on Oct. 13.

We would also like to congratulate Sergeant Barnes for earning his Advanced Law Enforcement Certificate from the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission of the North Carolina Department of Justice. This is the highest training certificate that an Officer can receive and it reflects the hard work and dedication that Sergeant Barnes provides to the citizens, the Mount Holly Police Department, and to his calling as a Police Officer. Congratulations Sergeant Barnes!

We would like to thank Pinewood Elementary for inviting us to put on a K9 demonstration for the children this week. The children really enjoyed talking to K9 Officer Cox and watching his partner Hondo in action.

As our City continues to grow and thrive we want to make sure everyone uses caution while driving. The landscape of our City is changing from the southernmost to our northernmost areas. With this being said, the northernmost area is beginning to develop land for new homes, and this development project is increasing traffic on Horseshoe Bend Beach Road. We have conducted traffic studies in this area utilizing Officer initiated traffic studies and our Speed Measurement Signs. We are urging all motorists to use caution while driving on this road. It is a necessity for developers and residents to share the road safely so we will continue to monitor the area to ensure the safety of our motorists. As a reminder, the speed limit on Horseshoe Bend Beach Road is 35 miles per hour and extreme caution should be used while navigating the curves on this road. The Mount Holly Police Department has made contact with the local Home Owners’ Associations and the management of the development group to make this project as safe and streamlined as possible. These new homes will be a welcome addition to our City and the improvements being made to the road will be beneficial for all of our residents. Please drive safely.

We would like to take a moment and send our sincerest thanks to Ms. Nannini’s class at Pinewood Elementary. They wrote some very special letters to us for Patriots Day and we couldn’t have been more excited to receive them. We have them on display at the police department to remind us of how fortunate we are to have such a supportive community. Thank you again!!

The Mount Holly Police Department had the pleasure of introducing our two newest team members to the Mayor and City Council last night. Alex Granados and Benjamin Linares were both hired this year. Alex is a member of our Communications team as our newest Telecommunicator and Benjamin is a member of our Patrol team as our newest Police Officer. We are very proud to have them both as a part of our family.

We started the #9PMRoutine in July of this year and we would like to start it up again. It is a very simple routine to start and it takes virtually little time to complete. All you have to do is make sure your valuables are removed from your vehicles, the doors on your vehicles are locked, and then make sure the doors and windows of your house and storage buildings are locked at 9PM every night. We think this is great routine for our community to start doing to help deter thieves from stealing your belongings. Let's get the #9PMRoutine started again in Mount Holly!
