During Recruiters on Your Computers, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) goes live on Facebook to share information about becoming an officer. In this edition, we join the Lake Unit to learn more about their unique role patrolling three local lakes: Lake Norman, Lake Wylie and Mountain Island Lake.

CMPD’s Lake Unit was formed in the 1980s in response to rapid development and today, officers patrol 48,000 acres of water and 900 miles of shoreline. That’s more shoreline than the North and South Carolina coasts combined!

With nine specialty divisions, the Lake Unit is just one of many opportunities to grow your career with CMPD. To see a day in the life of Lake Unit officers and learn more about what it takes to become a CMPD officer, tune in.
