Richmond Police Department

The Richmond Police Department serves a diverse community of approximately 102,000 residents over a large geographic area that includes 32 miles of shoreline, numerous residential neighborhoods, an active port, significant industrial and technological resources, major retail and business centers, and several thousand acres of parkland. 

 Richmond offers a city of contrasts. It is no secret our community has struggled for decades with crime and other problems common to many urban areas. Although much of the violence in Richmond is concentrated to relatively small sections of the city, its impact is felt city-wide, and residents in every neighborhood share a desire for a safer community.
