  • Visit only neighborhoods you know.
  • Make sure your costume lets you move, see, and hear easily.
  • Wear a light-colored or bright costume so drivers can see you.
  • Put reflective patches or strips on your costume.
  • Carry a flashlight or glow stick.
  • Stay in well-lit areas.
  • Watch out for cars.
  • Have your parents check your candy before you eat it.


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.  More details will follow.  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.
