A Message from Chief John Bennet


As of February 25, 2019, the Washington County Sheriff's Office and the City of Cornelius selected me to be your Chief of Police. I report directly to City Manager Rob Drake. My leadership team is comprised of myself, Sergeant Jordan Weston, and Corporal Tyler Whitley. 


Since July of 2014, the City of Cornelius has recieved police services from the sheriff's office. Our dedicated staff is outfitted in Cornelius Police uniforms and patrol the city in Cornelius Police marked vehicles. Your Cornelius Police Department is comprised of 13 full-time staff, including myself. I am truly honored to step into the role as your police chief. I am committed to this community and I am excited about the opportunities and challenges that are ahead of me.  


I want you to know that I believe strongly in the core values of the Cornelius Police Department and Sheriff's Office;


Do your best

Do the right thing

Treat people the way you want to be treated


Whether you are enforcing the law, attending community events, or simply having coffee with folks; treating each other with respect and valuing other points of view matters. I sincerely value the support and trust bestowed upon us by the public. I will hold myself and staff accountable to always adhere to these core values. I look forward to seeing you all around town and serving you as your chief.
