Child Safety Seat Inspections

The Nags Head Police Department is fortunate enough to have two officers on staff who are certified in the inspection of child safety seats. These inspections are free of charge and provide parents with the piece of mind that their equipment has been properly installed and utilized. If child safety seats are improperly installed or are being used inappropriately, they will be of little help should the need arise. Inspections can be made by appointment by contacting the Nags Head Police Department (252-441-6386), or at certain advertised Town functions.

Extra Patrol

As always, Nags Head residents and business owners can request an extra patrol of their properties while they are out of the area. Simply make a request by contacting the Nags Head Police Department at 252-441-6386 or by email (email the Police Department). Notify staff of your name, the property to be monitored, dates requested, and any emergency contact information.

Med Return

The appropriate disposal of medications is always a difficult task, but a service offered by Nags Head Police makes it easy. Located in the lobby of the Nags Head Police Department is a drug collection unit aptly named Med Return. Residents and visitors alike can make quick and easy disposal of unwanted medications by simply bringing them to our agency and placing them into the unit.
