HPD District 7 Community Walk:

On Thursday, June 20th at 5:30 p.m., the Harrisonburg Police Department, along with other city departments will be participating in a community walk. This event provides an opportunity for officers and community stakeholders to go door to door connecting with residents through conversation.

The areas of focus for the walk will be HPD’s District 7, to primarily include Central Avenue and connecting streets from Laurel Street to Middlebrook Street. This is the fifth of many community walks to take place in the coming months. HPD encourages community members to walk and engage with officers who work in their district by asking questions, sharing information and learning about resources available to them.

The ‘Community Walk’ program was established to help bring together law enforcement and the citizens it serves with the goal of building mutual trust. “The event fits with our Community Policing philosophy,” says Chief of Police Eric English. “We’re taking community engagement and dialogue to our citizens, in their neighborhoods, with no set agenda; giving everyone a chance to discuss issues and learn more about each other.”

Mejor que hagan lo que acostumbran hacer en las calles de harrisonburg, pedir dinero con letreros.

Same ones on the corner holding signs

Is that a dog in the basket?

Just tie a piece of meth rock to a string and drag it across town. I’m sure that’ll lure them right in.

Great pic

They have a dog in the bottom of the cart ! Put it on local tv and someone will turn them in.

Pretty sure I've seen them come in where I used to work before. Can't remember names.

Shayna Simmons was this the guy ???????

Asking for money at any corner.

Thanks to South Boston for this public service message. Motorists, please stay safe out there - and always be alert!

South Boston Police Department
Officer Dennis Blanks created this video to bring awareness to Virginia’s Move Over Law. Every year there are emergency workers who are tragically killed or seriously injured while simply doing their jobs. When traveling on a road with two or more lanes, drivers must move over one full lane away from stopped emergency vehicles with flashing lights. If you are unable to do so, slow down and proceed with caution. Please share to help bring awareness to keep our officers safe! #MoveOver

Special thanks to Ryland Clark with RCFlyBy for aerial footage.

HPD would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who came out to support the Police Week events around Harrisonburg last week! Our officers enjoyed all of the opportunities to talk with community members, help kids explore police vehicles, and eat some ice cream!

But the department would also like to extend our sincere thanks for everyone coming together to remember and honor those that have fallen in the line of duty and their sacrifice to communities across the country. The support is felt, it is not taken for granted, and it is very appreciated.

Annual Click-It-Or-Ticket Campaign Starts Today

Click It or Ticket is a high visibility enforcement program designed to raise safety belt usage and save people from death and serious injury on the streets and highways.
The program will use educational radio messages recorded personally by chiefs and sheriffs, along with stepped-up enforcement, to send a strong message that safety belts save lives.
The Click It or Ticket campaign is currently used in 18 other states and the District of Columbia. In other Click It or Ticket campaigns, the occupant restraint usage rate increased by more than 10 percent, meaning that thousands of previously unbuckled drivers and passengers began using safety belts and child safety seats.
The campaign consists of strict enforcement, strong educational messages in the form of public service announcements, ads, signage, and numerous public appearances by officers on behalf of the program.
Virginia's statewide safety belt compliance rate is currently 84.1%

The campaign runs May 20 - Jun 2....please buckle up!

The Click It or Ticket campaign is currently used in 18 other states and the District of Columbia. In other Click It or Ticket campaigns, the occupant restraint usage rate increased by more than 10 percent, meaning that thousands of previously unbuckled drivers and passengers began using safety belts and child safety seats. 
The campaign consists of strict enforcement, strong educational messages in the form of public service announcements, ads, signage, and numerous public appearances by officers on behalf of the program.
Virginias statewide safety belt compliance rate is currently 84.1%

The campaign runs May 20 - Jun 2....please buckle up!Image attachment

Our city’s future leaders will soon begin taking shape, as HPD is honored to announce its first annual summer P.A.T.C.H. Camp. Pride, Accountability, Teamwork, Courage and Honor exemplify what is expected in a police officer and this camp will allow officers to interact with youth in a positive, friendly environment that develops trust while focusing on those five core values.
Area youth ages 12 to 16 are encouraged to apply and accept the challenge of the week-long summer camp which will be held starting Monday July 8 through Friday July 12 from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. daily.

HPD District 3 Community Walk:

On Wednesday, April 24th at 5:30 p.m., the Harrisonburg Police Department, along with other city departments will be participating in a community walk. This event provides an opportunity for officers and community stakeholders to go door to door connecting with residents through conversation.

The areas of focus for the walk will be HPD’s District 3, to primarily include Kelley St. and E. Gay St. and several connecting streets. This is the third of many community walks to take place in the coming months. HPD encourages community members to walk and engage with officers who work in their district by asking questions, sharing information and learning about resources available to them.

The ‘Community Walk’ program was established to help bring together law enforcement and the citizens it serves with the goal of building mutual trust. “The event fits with our Community Policing philosophy,” says Chief of Police Eric English. “We’re taking community engagement and dialogue to our citizens, in their neighborhoods, with no set agenda; giving everyone a chance to discuss issues and learn more about each other.”

HPD Responds to Hit-and-Run Involving a Cyclist

Harrisonburg, Va. – The Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) is seeking assistance in identifying the driver and/or vehicle involved in a hit-and-run traffic crash near the 1000 block of South High Street. At approximately 0600 hours this morning, HPD, the Harrisonburg Fire Department, and the Harrisonburg Rescue Squad responded to the area for a report of a person riding a bicycle who had been struck by a vehicle.

I see all the time. Jmu students do it all the time.

Not all drivers. There are exemptions to this law, care to share what they are?

This is so important!

Same thing goes for applying makeup. Three different occasions I have observed a lady getting on her full blown Kardashian makeup on the way to work. This morning was the third. Port Republic Road all the way from Port Republic to the 1300 block of Port Republic. I called RCSD when I got to work, but was informed I had to report it while it was occurring. So that encourages me to use my phone while driving. This lady is going to get hurt and likely hurt someone else in the process. I have video and a license plate number, but won’t post it because Facebook took it down. I’d like to add that she almost side swiped a bus at the Cross Keys intersection.

It's too bad HPD doesn't enforce this. I can't even count how many times I see JMU students on their phones at a stop light.

HPD Investigates Credit Card Theft

Harrisonburg, Va. – The Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) is seeking assistance in identifying the below pictured individuals who were involved in a credit card theft. On March 21, 2019, the male suspects utilized a distraction technique to steal a credit card out of the victim’s purse while she was grocery shopping. The suspects then went to multiple stores in the city and made purchases with the stolen credit card, resulting in the loss of thousands of dollars. Eventually the victim’s bank notified her of the potentially fraudulent purchases and the card was made inactive.

Anyone with information related to this case is encouraged to contact HPD’s Major Crimes Unit at 540-437-2640. Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact Crime Solvers by calling 540-574-5050 or by texting “HPD” plus their tip to CRIMES (274637).
