West District

Captain Craig Singer 

 I’ve been with Gastonia PD for the last 16 years, during this time I’ve been a part of many units such as Gang Inteligence  Liaison, Shift Tactical Officer, SWAT, Street Crimes Unit, and I was a Sergeant over Patrol over 8 years, while also serving as a Training Sergeant for 2 years.

I currently am the Commander of the Shift Tactical Officers, K9 Unit, and a Firearms and Taser Instructor.

Our main Goal in the West District is to focus on increasing our community commitment by strengthening the relationships within neighborhoods on a more consistent, personalized level.
