STOCKTON LAW ENFORCEMENT
The naming of this center was established by Resolution of the Board of Aldermen on October 6, 2009 upon the retirement of Kernersville's Chief of Police Grady C. "Neal" Stockton Chief, (1984-2009) who followed in his father’s footsteps, Chief “Grady” H. Stockton (Chief , 1968-1984). Together these dedicated men served the Town of Kernersville in law enforcement for over seventy years, continuously spanning sixty years (1948-2009), serving as Chiefs of Police for over forty-two of those years.
The entrance of the Stockton Law Enforcement Center is flanked by the Protector Statue inscribed with the words "To wear the badge is a choice; To serve the public is an honor." This statue symbolizes the trust and confidence that the Citizens of the Town of Kernersville can expect.
Located in the heart of the downtown area, the police department is steeped in time-honored tradition and history - where an officer can still be seen walking the beat downtown; standing at attention with head bowed and hand over their heart as a funeral procession goes by; where vehicle unlocks and jump starts are still a service to our citizens.
The Kernersville Police Department is a full service municipal police agency comprised of 88 personnel, 68 sworn and 20 civilian positions. In 2008, the department responded to over 37,000 calls for service.
