WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — There are some big changes happening at the Wilmington Police Department.

Monday, Chief Ralph Evangelous told the Wilmington City Council all about them.

Evangelous said he’s been working on restructuring the department for about a year now. The major changes include getting rid of Special Operations, merging remaining Special Operations with Patrol, building a Forensic Science Unit, creating three bureaus and combining the Vice and Criminal Divisions.

Evangelous said all that restructuring will help with communication and efficiency.

“It’s to balance work load within the organization and to put together some more efficient practices within the department to include planning and research,” Evangelous said.

Chief Evangelous said the changes will start July 1 and will not cost the city any more money to implement.
