Message from the Chief

Welcome to the Hope Mills Police Department portion of the Town of Hope Mills web page. This page provides general information about our team at the Hope Mills Police Department. It is my hope that the information we provide here will help you become more familiar with how our department operates and the services we can provide.

The men and women of the Hope Mills Police Department are dedicated to the safety of our community and excellence in customer service. Our team consists of 42 sworn officers and an additional 5 professional staff members providing excellent support to the department.

 Our team would not be complete without support from our community. As we continue to work together and develop future partnerships, we will continue to be successful with our fight against crime and the fear of crime.

As the Chief of Police, I will continue to listen to the needs of our community, evaluate crime trends, and respond in the most efficient and effective manner possible with our available resources.


Joel Acciardo
Chief of Police
