This is the best explanation for roundabouts I've ever seen! Thank you!

This lesson should have been introduced as soon as the roundabouts were installed, if not before . The proper use was and is still totally foreign to many . Thanks for the effort....

I am car D, every morning. Why is this SO difficult??

Thank you! These instructions are/have been seriously needed by most Harrisonburg drivers! Oh... Car D is justified in harboring that hate. Lol. 🙂🚗

Pretty sure this lesson IS included in training when you get your drivers license.

How about panhandlers? I almost killed one Friday afternoon at Market and Linda Lane... can we fix this? Soon.

We giveway to traffic from the right in the UK. So you'll giveway to traffic from the left. UK is built on Roundabouts lol

Indicate to Communicate. Needs signs that read that.

Yep Car D is screaming “It’s a YIELD sign not a Stop sign!” It’s really not rocket science! 🤣

Please encourage all city employees, including law enforcement officers and school bus drivers, to signal their exit. I go through one of these every day and I've never seen any of them signal their exits, which is sort of insane, as it's near a high crime area and directly in front of a school. I love turning signals. I hate trying to read peoples' minds.

😅😅😅I have been ‘D’ many times.

Ryan Mullins

Tim Shoemaker 😂😂 How often have you been Car D?

Parker Showalter

William Good

Maria Garcia

Annie Link David Nicely Elma Telalovic

The ring of death

Everyone should have to encounter at least one roundabout.

Richard H Baier I’m dead

Also, when the roundabout is empty and nobody is approaching from any side, the yield sign does not mean slam on your brakes and stop and wait for 5 minutes before proceeding while holding up traffic behind you. I'm talkin about you people that go through the one at Carlton Street.

Now to get the dummies with licenses to learn how to follow directions

PREACH!

Awesome! Now let’s learn how to properly use median crossovers!

HPD Investigates Armed Robbery:

At approximately 6:00 pm. last evening, officers with the Harrisonburg Police Department responded to an armed robbery call for service in the area of Linda Lane and E. Market St. The victim of the robbery was apparently approached by two individuals, one of them known to the victim, the other unknown. Officers checked the suspects last known location but were unable to locate them. There were no reported injuries.

Jerry Upton, 57, of Georgia (no local address) along with the other suspect, are wanted for multiple counts of armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, and abduction. Upton is described as a black male, 6’0”, 150 lbs., and may reportedly have a distinctive walk due to a previous leg injury. The other suspect is described as a black male.

This case appears to be an isolated incident. Detectives with HPD’s Major Crimes Unit (MCU) are currently investigating and updates will be provided as the case progresses.

Steele you're absolutely correct and the study you're citing was done by "women and policing" and had been expanded upon by " The Atlantic" and reported on by multiple media organizations.

Not all domestic violence is physical. There’s the psychological one and is as bad as the physical. Scars can’t be seen, but they hurt so bad as well. We can crawl back out of there. We are stronger than the aggressive part, we just need to believe in our selves and walk away. Heal, forgive, let go, and move on.. but never -ever- go back!

Police are 2-4x more likely to be domestic abusers than the general population according to multiple studies.

So who took over the fb page? Lol

I would reposition the cameras.

Looks to me like the one in the lighter clothing is a woman.

Tips for not having your prized possessions stolen:

1. Do not leave your prized possessions in your car.
2. If you do leave your prized possessions in your car, do not leave them in view for criminals.
3. If you leave your prized possessions in your car and you also leave them in view for criminals, lock your car.
4. If you leave your prized possessions in your car and in view for criminals and the doors unlocked, they might get stolen.

Vehicle break-in's are on the rise in several areas around the city! Remember to take valuables inside and lock your car doors!

I know not everyone understands the meaning of the department being out here for this, but as a cop’s wife, and someone In this community herself, I am so incredibly proud of our department taking a stand to support love and compassion over hate and bigotry.

LOVE this! Every time the PD reaches out and shows support to ANY group of people is a great thing. Community outreach is so important and each event is to connect the police with the community in a positive way to encourage positive interactions and mutual respect. No person is perfect, not every interaction will be peaceful, but it's a step. All the downtown events, the National Night Out, and so on, are good for the community and all aim to do good. Also, this is not political, it's about people and community.

It was a beautiful and fun event to be a part of 🙂 Thank you HPD for the support and keeping the event safe.

It was a wonderful event and I thank the officers who supported us and kept the event safe.

I’ll be looking to take photos of you and your vehicles supporting the next immigration and Black Lives Matter event. 💙

Love it! I support the Love of all kind and colors. Now I have a quest to haunt down that car... I want a picture with it!

Thank you HPD

For those who are judging and criticizing this, YOU are the reason we need this awareness.

Glad I live in Rockingham County & not in the city paying taxes for this crap.

Id like to see the HPD rolling up to other events on the square and the pics taken for social media. True equality in that kinda thing. <3

Beautiful

Will there be food ,I like food .

I’m sure someone at the police department got the word they would do it.

To the people commenting sarcastic or hateful comments in here, YOU are why they have this event.

Remind me, why do we need to promote this?

You have no business putting a political🏳️‍🌈cause upon your car, like that.

The most annoying for me is exit from Verizon/Chipotle turning right onto Evelyn Byrd. That intersection is constantly blocked! You can't get through it until the light changes! I really wish citations could be given.

An officer posted at these trouble intersections for a week would hopefully remedy these issues. I see it everyday all over the city.

It keeps being posted that the JMU police has some authority to be able to write tickets as well, so why are they not at least around JMU (blocks) area trying to resolve these issues Monday thru Fridays for a few weeks instead of being off campus all the time.

THANK YOU FOR THIS!! It happens every day at nearly every intersection coming into or going out of the JMU campus. Perhaps HPD needs an active presence at these intersections.

Thank you posting!

And thanks HPD for the great job you do!

You should probably tell this to your city bus transport workers... I've seen it happen twice at the reservoir rd. Walmart intersection where they come out and then block the intersection just so they could make the light out of Walmart. It's bad enough traffic gets backed up over the bridge but they're not helping matters clogging up traffic even further. Rant over.

I needed to hear/know/reminder of this ... thx!

Cantrell and Main, every morning.

Thank you.

Its because of the JMU students and not the residents. JMU should have a course that is mandatory to teach these youngins how to drive their cars!

Thank you!!

You may be able to have JMU send this to the student body.

This happens everyday Monday-Friday right at the intersection by Hotel Madison how about an unmarked cop set up there and start handing out tickets

Common to see this happen on Thursday morning around the 730 hour at the intersection of Main and MLK way. Left turn traffic off MLK will backup. Guess it has to do with JMU and class schedules.

Port Road at the interstate junction is the worst because the traffic lights 🚦 are not synchronized. It’s impossible when the first light is red, the next two are green and the last one is red. 🤦🏼‍♀️

They will learn not to interfere with or block the route or slow down the doughnut truck ...

Think the worst is the people on Port that block the intersections so you can't even get off the off ramps when the light turns green

Perhaps having two or more traffic lights right next to a major intersection it’s not very smart, specially when you have a green light, you think you can make a turn with out blocking the way but not the stupid light 100 yards away turn red and now you get stuck in the middle! Specially if the driver in front of you decide to make a left turn one eternity later after the light turns green.

Rt 11 onto port rd is very bad!

Every single day I see this. It irritates me when people do it on purpose, if I see someone do it and then they see someone, eh whatever. Other than that it's annoying.

I too hate getting box blocked

I prefer Illinois left turns: Pull into the intersection & RESERVE your right to go, once oncoming traffic has passed.

Can we make it legal to T-bone the dumbasses who do this?? That's the only they'll learn

Wow... You have bigger drug dealers that are white and never make it here. Maybe because they are connected to the Commonwealth attorney office and their parents know them. But surely you have heard of Newman. So why are y'all not arresting him?!? Coz he white? Coz his family is friends with Marcia? Coz he is an informant?!? I hope is the last one. Otherwise y'all are his B.

In honor of the September 11, 2001 attack on our country, several HPD officers climbed 110 stories of stairs to signify the 110 stories of the World Trade Center climbed by first responders 18 years ago. We will #neverforget this day or the lives lost. ... See MoreSee Less

HPD Investigates Possible Brandishing at School Bus Stop:

At approximately 7 am. This morning, the Harrisonburg Police Department received information that a school-aged male had brandished a firearm at a school bus stop in the area of Blue Ridge Drive.

Officers were able to stop the bus just moments later in the 1500 Block of Country Club Road. A description provided by the complainant assisted officers in determining a suspect and all other students were safely evacuated off the bus.

The preliminary investigation concluded a middle school student had displayed a BB-type handgun in the proximity to the school bus stop. The BB gun was left at his residence just prior to boarding the bus. No threats were intended towards the students on the bus or Skyline Middle School.

The Harrisonburg Police Department ensures all residents and their families that this is an isolated incident and the BB gun has been secured. HPD asks citizens to report any suspicious activity such as this to ensure the safety of the community.

HPD’s school resource officers are continuing a thorough investigation and following up with all students involved. If you have any further information about this incident, HPD asks that you contact them by calling (540) 434-4436. Anonymous tips related to this incident or any crime can be sent to Crime Solvers at (540) 574-5050 or by texting “HPD” plus their tip to CRIMES (274637).

In an effort to provide safety tips, reduce crime and educate college students and property managers on state and local laws, officers from HPD joined with officers from JMU Police Dept., the JMU Office of Student Accountability and Restorative Practices, the Harrisonburg Fire Department and community members from the HPD Community Police Academy went door to door to have conversations and hand out pamphlets.

I was out on port road this evening a pickup truck set and waited for vehicles go by and then turn on to Crawford Avenue

For the love of everything can you please do something with the intersection between AT&T and Verizon..... over 25 accidents in the last 3-4 years.

People drive the wrong way around Court Square multiple times a day. They think people can follow these directions lol lol lol

Can't see the flashing signals while looking at your phone -- that's just my opinion. I see it EVERY SINGLE DAY in Harrisonburg

Useless.... watched so many drivers disobey these signs on my drive home from work today. The texting while driving college students will never notice them.

Restrict travel rather than use common sense to set up your lights. Interesting. A little tiny bit of intelligence and they could easily see the problem.

Signs and lights only matter to those that follow the laws. Will there be police cars posted during these hours to issue tickets to those who dont care?

I saw multiple people ignore the signs at both time intervals today.

I watched 3 cars turn onto Hunters Rd today at 5:00. I hope these signs will be enforced.

Enforce them or they won't matter. People won't be looking for them or reading them more than likely anyway though, because this is a college town and universities are institutions built for money and masked only with the idea of knowledge, unfortunately. I also understand this was a city choice, rather than the actual police force, if I am correct. So, I feel bad for such a poorly made decision to be placed on HPD shoulders.

Blain Boggs you will have to find a different way to work now

Harrisonburg Police Department is looking for the support of area residents and business owners when it comes to keeping an eye out in our community.

The Harrisonburg Community Cams Program (HCCP) allows individuals and businesses to voluntarily register the locations of their video surveillance systems with HPD so officers know where video footage may be available following a crime. If an incident were to occur nearby, HPD officers may contact the camera’s owner and ask them to check their video surveillance system for a specific date and time for video that may show criminal activity.

The effort will help provide some extra eyes in the community and bring residents and police closer together in keeping neighborhoods safe.

“We can’t be everywhere at once, so it is important for us to work closely with our partners throughout the Harrisonburg community to keep an eye out and support the safety and security of our residents and businesses,” HPD Chief Eric English said. “We are very lucky to have such an engaged and caring community here in the Friendly City, and we always appreciate our residents and business owners being eager to support both our crime fighting efforts and community engagement programs.”

Registration is voluntary and there is no cost associated with registration. Registering your information does not provide the Harrisonburg Police Department with direct access to your camera. You may delete your registration at any time by notifying the Harrisonburg Police Department

Don’t forget to mention that the terms basically say anyone who signs up for this is required to give you any footage you decide might be related to a crime.

The same leaky department that warns drug dealers like "Newman" in Commercial Ct that cops are checking his drug sales, want to make a list of camera locations? So you can share it with robberstoo? Letting them evade being filmed? Shame on y'all. Bad department. Do your information holes first!!!

Thanks Officer Dolph, for all you and Officer Tyr do. The technology on your vehicle is terrific and interesting. We 💙 HPD!

Awesome video!

Thanks for that good info.

I would have never guess all of that. Thank you for sharing.

Wish we saw the pup 😞

I wish you guys provided the dogs some ice cream from Kline's for all their hard work and for a treat to cool them from the heat

super troopers 3

Curious...why leave them in the car then? Why can't the dog go in the office with you to do paperwork? If the dog is an officer too, he should be allowed inside.

you won't be able to hide for long from our fantastic HPD 🙂

The Harrisonburg Police Department is seeking assistance from the public to identify two suspects in a recent credit card fraud that occurred at Lowes on July 8, 2019.

The suspects (pictured) are described as Hispanic males in their late 20’s to early 30’s. One of the men is dressed in a shirt and tie, the other is wearing jean shorts and a striped shirt with a shaved head.

The victim was still in possession of the physical card, leading detectives to believe that the card information was likely compromised from a skimmer and cloned by the suspects.

If you have any information regarding the identity of the suspects, contact Detective Randall Life at 540-437-2690. To submit information anonymously, contact Crime Solvers at 540-574-5050 or text “HPD” plus their tip to CRIMES (274637).

if a telephone scammer influence someone to go to Lowe's and purchase a card and then give them the number off the back when that do the same thing? This recently happened to someone I know. Thankfully he didn't fall for it.

Gonna Get Hot

Temperatures are expected to reach the mid-90s multiple times this week. That, coupled with high humidity, can create a dangerous situation and even life-threatening conditions such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke if the proper precautions are not taken.

Residents also should be mindful of the impact of extreme heat on children and pets. A child’s body temperature can heat up three to five times faster than an adult, and children and pets should never be left in a parked vehicle under such heat conditions.

A number of valuable tips and important information is available at the Virginia Department of Emergency Management website, www.vaemergency.gov/threats/extreme-heat/.

HPD Makes Arrest in Double Shooting

Harrisonburg, Va. – On July 14, at approximately 6:30 p.m., officers with the Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD), responded to the 400 block of South Main Street for a complaint of two victims with gunshot wounds. At this time, the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) received reports of shots fired on West Grattan Street as well.

When officers arrived, they were able to eventually locate the victims, who had been travelling in a vehicle in search of assistance, in the area of East Johnson Street and Community Street. Both victims were transported to Sentara RMH Medical Center before one victim was transported to the University of Virginia Medical Center for treatment of serious but non-life- threatening injuries.

Preliminary investigation has shown that the victims were in the area of West Grattan Street when approached by two males. A struggle ensued between the victim in the passenger seat and one of the males after a firearm was displayed. The gun was fired, and both victims were struck.

Witnesses nearby and security footage in the area led officers to a townhome on West Grattan Street where the suspects were believed to have fled. Officers arrested two suspects at this time in connection with the shooting.

Aaron Christopher Gordon Jr., 20, of Harrisonburg, and Za’Jaun Page, 20, of Harrisonburg, were each charged with two counts of Conspiracy to Commit Robbery and two counts of Conspiracy to Commit Malicious Wounding.

This incident is believed to be isolated in nature with no additional risk to the public.

The incident is still under investigation and more charges may be forthcoming. HPD is requesting that anyone with information about the incident contact the Major Crimes Unit by calling (540) 437-2650. Those who wish to remain anonymous may do so by calling Crime Solvers at (540) 574-5050 or by texting “HPD” plus their tip to CRIMES (274637).
