Motion lighting is better for the outside of the home. It will alert you if someone is on your property.
A gun may be carried inside your vehicle as long as it is IN PLAIN VIEW so that if you are stopped, the police officer will see it.
The Police Department requires that the residence be vacant and that the home owner signs a notarized copy of the Trespass Agreement . This allows us to remove anyone from the property that doesn’t belong there.
Don’t stop, however you do need to turn on your hazard lights and reduce your speed until you get to a well-lit area.
Get a description of the person and the location where the drugs are being sold. Call the police and give them the information.

A double cylinder deadlock with a 1 inch throw is one of the best locks you can have.
Do NOT enter the residence. Use a cell phone and call 911 or go to a neighbor’s house and call 911. Stay out of the residence until the Police arrive and clear the residence.
The Goldsboro Police Department will do a keep check of your residence from the time you leave until you return. We require you to submit a form with general information about you and the residence.
A citizen who has a complaint against an officer or employee will be given the opportunity to discuss the complaint with a Captain or higher ranking officer. If no Captain or higher ranking officer is available, the citizen may discuss the complaint with the Shift Commander or Acting Shift Commander. The complaint will be discussed at that time and an attempt will be made to resolve the matter. If the complaint is not resolved, the citizen may complete and sign a written Citizen Complaint Form.
