The Black Mountain Police Department provides public information and education in many different ways. Some examples would be an open house, website, brochures and community meetings. Each year there are several school children tours in which the Police Department offers safety tips for children. This is a positive reinforcement to our community's children on how important it is to wear seat belts, bike helmets and not to approach strangers. The Department also speaks at Highland Farms to the Black Mountain elderly community on how to avoid becoming victims of financial fraud among other related issues.
