City's Police partnering with Virginia State Police

The Police Department would like to inform the community of a planned partnership with the Virginia State Police, which will result in more marked police vehicles and visible law enforcement activity throughout the city beginning next week. This partnership with the Virginia State Police is part of the state’s initiatives supporting local law enforcement in efforts to reduce crime and save lives across the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The partnership will be a focused effort using data-driven analysis to guide enforcement efforts through the holiday season with the goal of reducing traffic crashes and injuries through enforcement and additional focused efforts to reduce violent crime in the community. Some of the locations identified include: Nor Dan Drive, Halifax Road, South Boston Road, Riverside Drive, Central Boulevard, Franklin Turnpike, Craghead Street, Memorial Drive, Mountain View Drive, South Main Street, and West Main Street

Members of the community should expect to notice an increase in police presence in the coming weeks. This is a planned proactive operation and not a response to any specific threat to our community.
