Harrisburg Law Enforcement

Since Harrisburg’s incorporation, the Town has partnered with Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office to offer residents law enforcement services. The partnership is a fiscally responsible way to bring a wide range of high-level services that receive statewide recognition to the community.

The assigned Sheriff’s deputies spend 100% of their time in Harrisburg. They respond to calls, enforce laws and ordinances, investigate accidents and crimes and provide community policing services.

Because Harrisburg is served by the Sheriff’s Office, the Town benefits from a seamless connection with their support services, including the County’s 9-1-1 center, dispatch of fire and law enforcement, records department, booking and jail services, crime scene investigation, criminal investigation, K-9 units, SWAT, bomb squad, negotiators, animal control, civil process and administrative services. Outside of contracted services, the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office also provides School Resource Officers at each school in Harrisburg.

Harrisburg’s deputies are part of the community. You see them around town, building relationships with the people and businesses of Harrisburg. They want to know you and they want to know what’s important to you.

Because the Town and Sheriff’s Office work together, Harrisburg residents get the operational benefits of a large force, while keeping with the personable feel of their close-knit community.
