Adult Reassurance Program 
This service is available to Town residents at no cost. The program provides a friendly and familiar interaction between our officers and our homebound community members. Participants will be assigned a Youngsville Police Officer, who will contact them either by phone or in-person twice a month to create a recognized and reliable fellowship. If no contact is made, an emergency contact person will be notified so the well-being of the individual can be verified.  To qualify for this program, you must be a Town of Youngsville resident who lives alone, 65+ years old, or an adult with a disability. 

If you or a loved one would like to apply for this program please fully complete the Adult Reassurance Program Form online.

Citizens Police Academy 
The Youngsville Police Department team is excited to give its citizens and area business owners a chance to develop a better understanding of the services provided by the agency. Our Citizens Police Academy is a collaborative effort between residents, business owners, and police officers that will focus on building partnerships of trust critical to creating a safe and pleasant community. The courses offered will be highly interactive to encourage student participation through opportunities for open dialogue and hands-on learning.

The dates and times for this Academy will be announced at a later date.

House Check Program
The Youngsville Police Department provides a free property security check for citizens who will be away from their residence for an extended period, not to exceed 14 days. This program is a public service to help safeguard citizens' property and allow the department to notify homeowners in the event of a problem regarding their residence.

As part of the program, police officers will conduct a periodic security check and inspect doors and windows to ensure all entries appear secured and untouched. If an officer discovers that the residence has been broken into or a crime has occurred, the designated “emergency contact” will be notified so the residence can be secured, and appropriate police action taken. This service does not include feeding animals, watering plants, picking up mail and/or newspapers or similar types of activity.

In order for a citizen to qualify for this program, the following must be met:
• Residence must be within the incorporated limits of the Town of Youngsville
• A fully completed House Check Request Form must be submitted. The House Check Request form may be submitted online or in person to the Youngsville Police Department.

Safe Exchange Zone

The Youngsville Police Department is pleased to announce we now provide a dedicated Safe Exchange Zone. The Town Hall and Police Station Parking lot, 134 US 1A South Youngsville, NC 27596, has two designated parking spaces with safe exchange parking signs. The designated zone is under 24-hour surveillance and allows the public to make purchases and exchange transactions in a monitored area rather than conducting their exchanges at private residences.

When using the Safe Exchange Zone please keep in mind that police officers will not be present or assist with any transactions. The exchange of any illegal item is not permitted. The Safe Exchange Zone is meant for person-to-person transactions only and not commercial business. Property may not be dropped off and left unattended.


Autism Decal Program

The Youngsville Police Department has partnered with Project: Whimsical to provide our community with the First Responder Autism Decal. These decals were created by a law enforcement officer, in order to alert fellow first responders that there could be an Autistic person in the vehicle or home it is attached to. The decals can be customized with one or two behaviors that the first responder would need to know about, and the words are reflective so they are even noticeable at night! 

If you are interested in receiving a free Autism Decal please complete the form below.  In addition, to the decal, the Youngsville Police Department will keep the information on file in case of an emergency involving the individual. The information will further assist the law enforcement officer responding to the incident.
