phone: 704-336-5729

There are 87 sworn Officers, 7 Sergeants, 3 Response Area Lieutenants, 1 Captain and 1 Investigative Technician allocated to the Central Division.
The office is located at 119 E. Seventh St., at the corner of E.Seventh and N. College Streets.
      The Central Division comprises nearly 4.2 square miles of business, residential, recreational and academic communities. The estimated residential population is 20,000, but that number swells to well over 100,000 during business hours. On the nights and weekends, the scene changes dramatically into a vibrant entertainment district. The Central Division is home to Bank of American Stadium (Carolina Panthers), Time Warner Cable Arena (Charlotte Hornets) and BB & T Ball Park (Charlotte Knights). Uptown Charlotte hosts more than 12 million regional visitors each year! Two of the country's largest banks are headquartered in uptown as well as a great variety of other corporate entities. The Central Division is home to several academic institutions: Central Piedmont Community College, Johnson & Wales University, the uptown branch of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte as well as campuses for Wake Forest and the Charlotte School of Law. Historic South End is a lively arts community which adds even more diversity. 


  Central Division Key Staff

The Response Area Team is designed to strengthen ownership and accountability for crime reduction and community safety. It enables officers to become more familiar with the people who live and work there, patterns of crime and suspect behaviors, and community resources that may be leveraged to address crime and quality of life issues.
