When the Williams Place nursing home was under construction on Peninsula Drive I observed a car of young men drive onto the site at night. I called the police and they responded immediately and handled the trespass situation.

Are there any other comments, questions, or concerns about the Davidson Police Department that you'd like to address?
First, know because of our local police and our location, having lived in Washington, DC and Atlanta, Ga., Davidson is an extremely safe place to live. However, I am not convinced that the Police Dept has the best relationship it could have with long time Black Davidson residents. Since returning here in September of 1985, I have had three direct encounters with our police.1) I reported and asked for an arrest of an individual involved in a case of stolen identity ($26,000.00) and did all that I could do to provide information or whatever was asked for. I was offended that the detective at the time never clearly closed the case and implied that I was probably involved. 2) Had two officers to BAM on my door at 7am, one Saturday morning looking for a large Black man who had taken a cab from Charlotte or somewhere at 2am in the morning, apparantely got out of the cab and walked up my driveway and crossed over the short carport wall and escaped to the next street. The investigating officers, one of whom's behavior, attitude, and approach reflected an assumed guilt instead of innocent until proven guilty, knew so little about this Black neighborhood, he did not know I was an ally and not a criminal. Why in a Black portion of an almost all-white community did he not know that I was an ordained Presbyterian minister, the retired Asst. Chaplain of the College in our town. I first told this officer there was no Black man or any males in my home and then, due to his behavior and approach, I told him he could come in and search if he wanted too. His partner looked as stunned as I felt and he was told by the other officer to search, the poor man stood not far from my front door and peered into the rest of the house but never actually looking into any room he could not see from front door.. I even tried to explain to the first officer that people often walk from this area through my yard, without permission, going to Jetton St. 3)Last, after the second in a series of 3 programs sponsored by two churches here, to encourage and teach community about police and community relationships, after the riot in Charlotte last September, I took a letter to our Chief, about a workshop/presentation I would be glad to do relative to officer training that would positively help with their interactions especially relative to Blacks and got no response what so ever. I was fine with her possibly not having a need for this, or having no interest in my doing this,but it did not bode well for positive communication with at least one member of the Davidson Black community. Did I speak up about any of this, No. Being back in Davidson for 30 yeara now, I have tried everything you can think of including starting groups like Davidson Common Ground to help fellow members of the Davidson community realize that what too many think - -Davidson One Town, Many Voices is and has never been an accurate depiction of what our town could be, and what would be pleasing to God, Our Creator.

The conduct of Davidson Police Department members has always been exemplary.

The one thing we would like to see is increased traffic enforcement. As our town grows we need to enforce speed limits and other laws to keep our pedestrians and bicyclists safe.
