A message from Police Chief Rick Lassiter:

Welcome to the Louisburg Police Department. The Louisburg Police Department is located in the Louisburg Training Center/Fire Department/Police Department Center. This multifunctional complex allows for Public Safety Departments to work closely in support of each other as well as provides the perfect location for training areas for multi-jurisdictional agencies and staff.

Purpose

It is the purpose of the Louisburg Police Department to devote our resources to the task of preserving peace and order, protecting life and property, and the vigorous enforcement of all laws in a fair and impartial manner. We strive to treat all people with respect, fairness and compassion. We are committed to serving our community to enhance the quality of life and to nurture public trust by holding ourselves to the highest standards of performance and ethics. Our officers are professional, trained, and determined to serve as a deterrent to crime, develop relationships with community groups, residential and business organizations, and promote an environment receptive to all visitors.

The Louisburg Police Department maintains this level of service by providing continuous training and educational development, as well as career enhancement opportunities for all officers.

Administrative Issues

The Louisburg Police Department investigates crimes occurring within the Louisburg City Limits. Often criminal activities take place in other jurisdictions yet affect the citizens of Louisburg. The Police Department is an active partner with the Franklin County Sheriffs Department and many State and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies as we strive to enforce and deter criminal activity in our community and N.C. Participation in specific offense task force activities such as illicit Drug eradication operations and others have led to success in fighting these terrible elements of all communities.

The Department investigates and maintains local traffic accidents occurring on local streets and public vehicular areas. Accident reports that are completed and required by insurance companies may be picked up at the Department on the date given by the investigating officer.

  • Small town life…

    What I believe makes life in a small town like Louisburg special is the relationships. Everyone knows everyone and there is a caring spirit. It’s the kind of place where your elementary and high school teachers attend the same church as you.

  • Raising a family here…

    When people ask me where I am from, I am proud to tell them Louisburg, NC. I have lived in Louisburg my entire life and love that we have chosen my hometown to raise our family.

  • It’s a special place here…

    Louisburg is a special place because of the people in the community. It’s the kind of place where you know all of the firemen because you went to school with them. It’s the kind of place that you feel safe to walk down the sidewalks and wave to people riding by.

  • So much to offer…

    The town has a lot to offer through the schools, Louisburg College, the many churches and civic organizations, the library, the recreations department, and many other offerings, but the people are what truly make it special.
