On behalf of the men and women of the Black Mountain Police Department, welcome to our website!
Located just miles east from the City of Asheville, we serve and protect nearly 9,000 citizens. Black Mountain is a growing, vibrant community that cares a great deal for its neighbors. Our highest priority is to employ 21st Century policing technology and tactics without shedding our "neighborhood cop" identity. To do this, we strive to hire and retain the best people available.
We always want to remind the community that safety doesn’t come without community investment. It’s every citizen’s job to care for the community, make safe choices and report suspicious behavior or criminal activity. We are focused on our goals of Community Policing and engaging with our citizens. The true bread and butter of our department still lies with the day-to-day functions of our patrol and detective staff, whose primary focus is crime prevention, problem-solving, and when necessary, apprehension and arrest.
All our efforts are designed to this end; we are always working to better serve everyone who lives, works, or visits the Town of Black Mountain. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact me via email or by calling 828-419-9350. I look forward to working with all of you to build a stronger police-community partnership for a better and safer community.
