phone: 704-336-8535

Currently 1 Captain, 3 Response Area Lieutenants, 8 Sergeants, 92 Officers and 1 Investigative Technician staff the Eastway Division. The office is located at 3505 Central Avenue.
      The Eastway Division currently encompasses nearly 10.2 square miles of historic and older communities like Plaza-Midwood, one of Charlotte's oldest neighborhoods. The buildings range from turn-of-the-century factories and blue collar housing to elegant residences and the city's first country club, Charlotte Country Club. The historic North Charlotte Community represents an important phase in the development of the City of Charlotte, and today many of the original cotton and textile mills have been converted into private residences. The Eastway Division includes a strong commercial and international community along the Central Avenue corridor. The estimated population is 44,285.

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.
