Community Programs

Shop With A Cop
The Shop with a Cop program will pair police officers with children in the community to provide them with a winter coat, socks, clothes and toys.  Not only does it provide an opportunity to build a positive relationship between officers and children, it shows a true giving spirit to those in need.

If you would like to sponsor a child, donate or get more information, please contact the Youngsville Police Department at 919-556-0500.  Donate Now

Project ChildSafe
Project ChildSafe (  is the largest, most comprehensive firearms safety education program in the U.S. It was developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry, and is committed to promoting genuine firearms safety through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm safety kits. The kits include a cable-style gun-locking device and a brochure that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines to help deter access by unauthorized individuals. The Youngsville Police Department partners with Project ChildSafe to provide citizens with the free firearm safety kits.  Please stop by the Youngsville Police Department during normal business hours (Monday-Friday 8:30 am-4:30 PM) to get your safety kit. 

Drug Take Back

Furthermore, we hold drug take back events throughout the year to give additional opportunities to the public to safely dispose of medications.  Items that are acceptable are over the counter medications, prescription medications, prescription patches, prescription ointments, vitamins, and pet medications.  Items that we DO NOT accept trash, regulated medical waste, sharps, syringes, thermometers, hazardous waste, aerosols, illicit drugs, and commercial waste.  

National Night Out

National Night Out ( is an annual community-building event that partners law enforcement agencies with local businesses, citizens, community leaders and neighborhoods to promote a true sense of community.  It is a great opportunity to bring police and the community together under positive circumstances.
