Social Media Guidelines

This site is moderated; we welcome participation of our citizens on our social media platforms and ask that you recognize these guidelines:

Once posted, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department reserves the right to delete comments that

  • contain vulgar language
  • are spam
  • are personal attacks of any kind
  • are offensive comments
  • are prejudiced or hurtful remarks made toward any ethnic, racial, or religious group
  • include sales/promotion of goods or services or links to other sites
  • advocate illegal activity
  • promote particular services, products, or political organizations
  • infringe on copyrights or trademarks

These guidelines align with the City of Charlotte’s Social Media Policy, specifically section 4.4 of that policy.

*Please note that the comments expressed on social networking sites including Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), Instagram and Linkedin, do not reflect the opinions and position of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department or its employees.
