Radford City Police Department Supports the Virginia Community Policing Act
The Radford City Police Department continuously collects data as required by state law established through the Virginia Community Policing Act. The act requires law enforcement officers to collect information from drivers during all traffic and investigatory stops, and requires agencies to submit the data to a statewide Community Policing Reporting Database. The department policy prohibits biased based policing and utilizes this data to ensure compliance.
It is the mission of the Radford City Police Department to constantly look for new ways to positively engage with the community. The Chief's Advisory Panel was developed in order to continue the mission of shared responsibility with our citizens, businesses, and visitors in preventing and solving crime within the community. Having community support, gaining trust, and accepting feedback is vital in achieving police legitimacy. The Chief's Advisory Panel also assists the agency in maintaining transparency with the community and soliciting feedback on delivery of police services within the City of Radford.
