Open Letter to the Community from Mocksville Police Chief Todd Penley

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of the Town of Mocksville for making this such a wonderful place to live. Whether you are a resident, business owner, or a visitor you are all equally important to the Town.

The employees of the Town of Mocksville Police Department are all committed to providing the highest quality of police services to the community and are ready to assist you at any time. Please feel free to contact us for any of your law enforcement related questions.

Daylight savings time started  on March 13 and with this you will see an increased number of people out and about. All walkers and runners need to make a conscience effort to use the cross walks when crossing the street. These cross walks are strategically placed on the streets to provide the highest visibility for the pedestrian. Bicyclists need to make sure they are traveling in the same direction as vehicles on the roadway. Bicycle riders are required to follow the same traffic laws as are vehicles. If the riders choose to ride on the sidewalk, which is not recommended, please make sure to pass the walkers in a safe and slow manner.

The new greenway located in Rich Park is now ready for residents and visitors alike to use. There have already been huge increases in the amount of bikes and walkers. With the increase in walkers and bikers there has been an increase in vehicular traffic. Drivers please slow down and watch for children and be aware of all your surroundings. Children have a tendency to be more concerned with the ball they are chasing or running from playground to playground they sometimes forget to look both ways. While on the greenway you will see Mocksville Police officer. Please feel free to stop us with any of your concerns.

The Mocksville Police Department is proud to serve the members of our community in any way possible. With the communities eyes and ears helping we all will live in a better community.

Safe Neighborhoods and Speeding Patrols

The Police Department will be increasing patrols in the residential neighborhoods for speeders. We recently had a serious accident in one development and hope to prevent anymore. We are asking all residents to share this task with us by slowing down and being more responsible and aware of posted speed limits. NC has statewide speed restrictions GS 20-141; §

(a) No person shall drive a vehicle on a highway or in a public vehicular area at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions then existing.

(b) Except as otherwise provided in this Chapter, it shall be unlawful to operate a vehicle in excess of the following speeds:

(1) Thirty-five miles per hour inside municipal corporate limits for all vehicles.

This limit is set by the state as being reasonable and safe. Unless posted the limit is 35mph within the town limits. Residents are encouraged to notify the police department of any problems, so they may be addressed immediately.  Neighborhoods with homeowners associations have the advantage of promoting driving safety even more so with newsletters, meetings or other ways information is distributed. If you do not have a homeowners association and have interest in forming a “Neighborhood Association” of “Community Watch” program, please contact the police department 336-753-6710.  The Mocksville Police Department is proud to team up with the citizens of Mocksville to address any neighborhood concern.
