If you are involved in a minor accident, no one is injured and the vehicles are drivable, move your vehicle to the untraveled portion of the roadway if possible. Cars left in the roadway contribute to traffic hazards. Call 911 and DO NOT leave until you have spoken to a police officer.
If you want information on your case you can contact the officer who initially took your report. If it is a case that requires considerable resources, it will be reassigned to the investigative division and an investigator will contact you.
Under normal circumstances, the officer or investigator will notify you or any important developments in your case. We encourage you to maintain contact with the police department and call if you have any questions regarding your case.
If you see an animal that appears to be rabid call 362-8661 and report the location of the animal. DO NOT TRY TO CAPTURE THE ANIMAL. Animals with rabies will show behavioral changes, they can be excited, aggressive, depressed or lethargic. They may be uncoordinated and unfocused on the activity or presence of humans around them.
Some animals that carry rabies are raccoons, foxes, and bats. These animals, which normally avoid humans, are nocturnal and it is unusual for them to be out in daylight hours.
If you are bitten by a domestic animal, North Carolina state law requires that it be reported to the police department.
