Message from the Chief

D. House

On behalf of the men and women of the Wrightsville Beach Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our website.

I am honored to serve as your Police Chief and consider it a privilege to work with the dedicated men and women of the Wrightsville Beach Police Department and other employees of the Town of Wrightsville Beach.

The Wrightsville Beach Police Department is committed to enhancing the quality of life of its residents through various projects and programs designed to facilitate cooperation and collaboration with the community.

We are committed to being a professional law enforcement agency, which is evident through our voluntary participation in the accreditation process through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and receiving full accreditation in July of 2015.

Due to the dedicated efforts of the professional men and women of the Wrightsville Beach Police Department, our community continues to be one of the safest places to live in North Carolina and one of the primer vacation destinations in the country.

I encourage you to further explore our website to learn more about the department, and to stay connected with us to further strengthen communication and collaboration.

The community’s support is essential to our continued success as a progressive policing agency. Together, we are able to achieve positive change to sometimes complex problems, while enhancing the quality of life for our entire community.

I would like to thank you for visiting our website and look forward to seeing you out in our community.


Daniel L. House Jr.
