Police officers, particularly those on patrol, often remark how much they appreciate a job that keeps them on the move. CMPD has taken that to heart by featuring its Charlotte-raised officers in advertising on Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) buses and light rail cars.
The campaign features six officers who graduated from Charlotte-area high schools and have made their professional living serving as CMPD officers (including a deputy chief, captain and detective). Look closely at the campaign artwork for photos of our homegrown heroes enjoying high school sports, hobbies and hanging out with friends and family.
We are proud of these, and all our homegrown heroes, raised here and serving here in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
