The Pineville Police Department would like to wish all residents a very happy holiday season.  Along with the holiday season, unfortunately, comes holiday traffic.  Please be careful and alert while driving through Pineville this holiday season.  We anticipate extremely heavy traffic around the mall and shopping centers.  Try to avoid Highway 51 if you are not planning to shop.  If you  must travel on 51 then be sure to drive within the speed limit, maintain a safe following distance, and do not block the intersections.


  • Lot Safety:  Roll up your windows, keep valuables out of sight, lock your doors.  Be sure to park in well-lit areas and avoid parking near vans, campers, or vehicles with dark-tinted windows.  Always be alert when returning to your car.  Have your keys ready, get into your car quickly, and leave the parking lot immediately.
  • Shopping:  Avoid carrying large amounts of cash; use debit or credit cards when possible. Try to shop with friends and keep your purse close to your side.  Report suspicious activity to a clerk or to Security and always stay alert - especially in crowded aisles, elevators, or escalators.  These are prime spots for pickpockets.


2017 Shop with a Cop Program

The Pineville Police Department is currently soliciting donations for our 3rd Annual Shop with a Cop event.  Shop with a Cop is a one-on-one experience for underprivileged children during the holiday season.  Each child is partnered with a Pineville Police Officer to spend the day shopping, socializing, and building a lasting relationship.

This year's even will be held on Saturday, December 16th.  If you are interested in donating to this program, corporate and individual donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible.  If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the Pineville Police Department at 704-889-2231.



The Pineville town-wide speed limit is 35 mph, unless otherwise noted.  The speed limit is 20 mph on Main Street.  The Pineville Police Department will be strictly enforcing these limits.  Be sure to observe the posted limits if you do not wish to receive a ticket.
