Today we had lunch with some of our friends from the Central Division. Catching up with both current and former members of our Division is great. It’s always nice to spend time together, but this year it is particularly gratifying to be able show support for the people who help to keep us safe.
As usual we have some of the best crime stats in the city. This is a testament to the work that everyone in the Division puts in each and every day. We are lucky to have a Team of dedicated professionals who work to make First Ward and Uptown a great place to live and work.
It’s also pleasing to see our Officers advance. Although some friends have moved on they are still a big part of the neighborhood’s success. We learned that Jeff Estes, a former Central Division Captain, will be named a Deputy Chief come the new year. No surprise as some of the top talent in CMPD comes out of the Central Division.
Thank you to everyone in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and especially the Central Division for another safe and prosperous year in First Ward.
