In 1847, the City of Wilmington hired its first police officer. At that time, the police department was located in the basement of City Hall until 1962, when it moved to the old Atlantic Coast Railroad building on Red Cross Street.

In July 2005, construction of a new, $24 million state-of-the-art facility began. The new Wilmington Police Headquarters was completed in December 2006.
