Coffee with a Cop

Dilworth Coffee

5818 Highland Shoppes Drive


Officers from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. All community members are invited to attend.


Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Charlotte neighborhoods. The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction. The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.

Crime Alert

posted Feb 26, 2014, 12:03 PM by Domain Admin   [ updated Feb 26, 2014, 12:10 PM ] is a scam working its way into our Charlotte neighborhoods; scammers posing as Sheriff Deputies.  How does the scam work?  Victims receive a phone call from someone posing as a Sheriff Deputy.  The caller informs the victim there is a warrant for their arrest because they failed to show up for jury duty.  The caller then tells the victim to prevent from being arrested they can pay the fine over the phone.  The caller instructs the victim to place $500 on a GreenDot prepaid card, call back within an hour, and provide the card number.  Once the money is paid to the caller, the caller’s phone number is disconnected.
The CMPD Financial Crimes Unit has confirmed this scam, and many others, are happening here in Charlotte.  According to the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office, there are a number of current scams happening across North Carolina.  Please read the attached document which covers these scams and ways to protect yourself.
What to do in the event of this scam…
- Immediately hang up and call the actual Sheriff’s Office.  The Sheriff’s Office can confirm or disprove if you have a warrant.  You can also check warrants online at
- The Sheriff’s Office will NEVER have you pay any money over the phone.  Money is actually collected by the Clerk of Courts.
- Never provide sensitive information over the phone.  How do you know who is actually on the other end of the phone?
- Call 911 to report this criminal activity.

Prelitigation Mediation of Condominium and Homeowners Association Disputes

posted Feb 20, 2014, 9:53 AM by Domain Admin July 1, 2013 a new law went into effect. It provides for a completely voluntary process by which HOAs and homeowners can agree to mediate legal disputes. The bill is codified in new statute 7A-38.3F. Chapter 7A is the chapter of our laws dealing with judicial matters – so be aware that while this is an HOA law, it is found in Chapter 7A and not in Chapter 47F (the Planned Community Act) or 47C (the Condominium Act).

The bill provides that HOAs and homeowners can agree to mediate a dispute, although neither is required to and either can decline to do so. If they do agree to do so, then the mediation is handled in the same way as any other mediation, which can result in a legally-binding settlement – again, if both parties agree.

The new law does not apply to disputes regarding payment of assessments, so those now cannot be mediated even though they could have been before.

Information for the Mallard Creek Widening

posted Oct 30, 2012, 11:16 AM by Domain Admin   [ updated Oct 30, 2012, 11:16 AM ] is some information from a news article about the project:

The Mallard Creek Road relocation project has two parts:
1. Widen two-lane Mallard Creek Road from West W.T. Harris Boulevard to about Garrison Drive.
2. Build a new roadway from Garrison to the intersection of West Sugar Creek Road and Mineral Springs Road.

Here are details on the project.
  • The four-lane road will cost about $22.6 million, is designed for 50-mph speed and will have a median, curbs, gutters and sidewalks along both sides of the roadway. The outside lanes will be 16 feet wide to give extra room to bicycles.
  • The state classifies the new roadway as a minor arterial with controlled access. As a controlled-access facility, no driveway connections will be permitted within the controlled-access limits.
  • The new stretch of roadway will run north south from Garrison to just south of Rumple Road, where it bends to the southwest toward Graham Street.
  • The state is working with the city of Charlotte regarding the extension of City Boulevard from its current end at Neal Road to the new road’s crossing at Rumple Road. The city would build the new stretch of City Boulevard. State staff said the city hopes to time City Boulevard’s completion with the opening of the new stretch of Mallard Creek Road.
  • The new roadway will cut through a part of the Forest Pond neighborhood that the developer reserved for the future highway. The roadway may result in the loss of the neighborhood pond and playground.
  • The new roadway will cut through the Park Place at Walnut Creek Condominium community and require the removal of two buildings erected in 2007 on Park Creek Drive.
  • Sidewalks will sit back 4 feet from the roadway and will not have trees in the planting strip. This runs counter to Charlotte’s road design standards, which call for an 8-foot planting strip between road and sidewalk, planted with large-maturing shade trees to encourage walking and bicycling.
  • Several homes on Rain Creek Way will lose significant portions of their backyards, with the road right of way coming within 25 feet of one home’s rear wall.

Here is the project manager contact information for the Mallard Creek widening.

Call 811 to Mark Utility Lines on Property

posted Apr 4, 2012, 10:51 AM by Domain Admin   [ updated Apr 4, 2012, 10:52 AM ] Before You Dig

Before you or someone you hire start digging — for a landscape project, a building project or for any other reason — call 811, a new "Call Before You Dig" number that will connect you to the North Carolina One Call Center (NC One Call).

*       Make the call. State law requires that you call your utilities before you dig. So notify the North Carolina One Call Center by dialing 811 to have your utilities located before beginning any excavation work. When a utility locate request is received by NC One Call, utilities have two business days beginning at 12:01 am of the next business day to mark their underground facilities.

*       Wait. Technicians will mark the location of utility lines on your property at no cost to you. You can then safely begin your digging project.

*       Respect the markings to ensure your safety.

*       Dig with care. If you accidentally hit a natural gas pipeline, call PSNC Energy immediately at

Calling 811 is a free service and it's the law. Not calling could result in injury or service disruption in your neighborhood, so make that call!

Projects that warrant NC One Call notification include the installation of:

*       Septic tanks and sewer lines

*       Swimming pools

*       Wells

*       Sprinkler systems and water lines

*       Basketball goal posts or mailbox posts

*       Fences and deck posts

*       Trees and shrubs

Remember, calling before you dig doesn’t cost a thing, but not calling could result in property damage or serious injury.
