The Town of Davidson Police Department normally welcomes hundreds of visitors throughout the year for tours of the police station. It’s always great to have so many residents, especially kids, come through the department to learn more about our officers and operations and see how hard we work to keep our community safe.During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still hard at work at the station, but unfortunately we can’t welcome visitors at this time. We want to offer you a virtual tour so you can visit the station from the safety of your own home! Access the tour here.
When things get tough, we benefit by reminding ourselves of the simple things. People live in Davidson to stay connected to the simple things of a small town - knowing your neighbors, walking or riding your bike to school/work, concerts on the green, the farmer’s market, and enjoying a slower pace (even if some of these things are looking a little different these days.) The peace that comes from being a small, college town includes harmony with our friends, neighbors, and other residents who enjoy moving around town on bicycles and on foot. You see the signs each time you enter the town limits reminding everyone of the pride taken in being – A bicycle and pedestrian friendly community.But occasionally, a reminder is helpful on the basics of safe movement in a vehicle, on a bicycle, or on foot. These reminders are especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic when so many more individuals and families are taking to the streets and greenways with their bicycles. We need to do everything we can to keep our community safe - now, and always. Awareness of the following basics is a lifesaving mindset:Basics for drivers of vehicles:
Basics for cyclists:
Basics for pedestrians:
We all want to be healthy and safe. Adhering to these basics each time you are moving around town could save a life, including your own.
