A: P2C is a police department specific web application that is designed to enable High Point residents to receive incident and accident reports directly from the website and print them out at home. The intent is to reduce the need to visit the police station to pick up a report. In addition, recent activities, arrests, and mapping functions are available through P2C, and the website also allows individuals to submit a report for non-emergency crime.

Q: What type of underlying soil do I have on my property?
A: Using the City of High Point Internet Mapping Service, anyone in the city can zoom into their neighborhood and display soil types.  One must understand that the soil map is derived from interpolated soil samples.  Because of this mapping method, the existence or coverage of a soil within a single property cannot be assumed.  Only soil samples physically taken within a property can determine actual content.
