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

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.

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

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).

Harrisonburg Police Department Community Walk

*** REMINDER ***

We will be out there in about an hour and hope we get an opportunity to speak with as many residents as possible.

Harrisonburg, VA – On Wednesday, March 27th 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 focus area of the walk will be HPD’s District 2, to include the 900 block of Jefferson Street, 100 and 200 block of Suter Street, and Drake Lane. This is the second of many community walks to take place in the coming months.
HPD encourages community members to walk and engage our 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 Foundation Takes Over Adventure Race

Daily News-Record (Harrisonburg, VA) - March 14, 2019
Author/Byline: PETE DELEA Daily News-Record

***** SAVE THE DATE JUNE 22, 2019*****

HARRISONBURG — Three years ago, Chad Layman started the Fine Earth Adventure Race to help veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

With three successful races under his belt, it was time for Layman, the owner of Harrisonburg’s Fine Earth landscaping, to hand the reins over to another organization, the Harrisonburg Police Foundation, according to the foundation.

“The bigger it got, the more it stretched their resources,” said Auxiliary Lt. Robert Barnard, who serves as the foundation’s chairman. Layman couldn’t be reached for comment.

The race is held each summer at the Harper-Presgraves Training Facility on Greendale Road in Harrisonburg. The facility is home to HPD’s SWAT team’s obstacle course, which is the main draw for the race.

Last year, the race attracted more than 700 participants, several thousand spectators and raised roughly $127,000 for the Florida-based K9s For Warriors. The program provides service dogs to veterans as a way of helping them deal with PTSD.

Moving forward, Barnard said, the money raised will remain local, to supplement the police department’s annual budget.

Barnard said funds will go toward projects and causes that might not receive city budget funding. For example, he said, if a police dog dies during the year, there’s likely no money in the budget to replace the K-9. The foundation can raise money for a replacement.

Barnard said the foundation plans to use the bulk of the race proceeds to fund Chief Eric English’s plans to create youth programs in the city.

English, who became chief on Sept. 10, has said he wants to get police more involved with after-school activities for children. “This chief really wants to help kids,” Barnard said.

This year’s race is scheduled for June 22. The foundation plans to announce a registration date in the coming weeks. VA Momentum will continue to help organize the race.

Someone stole all of the change out of my car in Harrisonburg. Weird. Definitely disconcerting.

Check security cameras in your area !!!

Hey guys you can purchase Coupler locks and wheel locks @ See-Mor customs RV service & rescue; it’s a small price to pay to protect your trailer. You should wrap up your safety chains together and padlock them too!

A friend is moving from Waynesboro, and he says if he sets anything outside his house on his lawn, it disappears when he goes inside. So it isn't just Harrisonburg.

One was mine, and I've obviously learned this lesson the hard way. But now that I'm looking at/for trailers on all my normal drives and walks, there are SO MANY in the city just sitting unlocked or unsecured. It's a little money and extra effort to keep them secured, but I can say that it doesn't seem like much in hindsight.

I live in Harrisonburg too. I would definitely lock it up! I lock my push mower to my house with a bike lock. Some people steal and resell your stuff. Some people steal just to steal, just because they can.

How about telling the areas they were located

Harrisonburg is growing and so is the crime rate. People ask why our jail is over crowded. Hummmmmm

Seems like a tremendous waste of time and resources! Why would firefighters need specialized training in bicycle riding??? There's a reason these guys ride around in huge trucks with tons of equipment, ladders, hoses, etc.... I'm guessing there are a couple of mid-level HPD/HFD guys who are polishing apples for their respective chiefs... LOL 👎👎👎

Can you say more about why the firemen need to learn to ride bikes? Just trying to figure out why are you there in bike school?

Sir's, what are you doing riding on the sidewalks, thought that was against the law for bicycles?

My oldest and I saw you guys yesterday on our way home from THMS

Perhaps a worthwhile public safety class would also be to teach riders that they do in fact have to follow the same laws as cars. Also, perhaps teaching pedestrians the proper and correct way to walk on a public street.

Yes, catch them all! Have fun, but be responsible.

I sincerely hope that you'll patrol Founders Way, I guarantee you will get some DUI's there.

Translation: the city of Harrisonburg needs money so uses cops to get more. Instead of expanding public transport so people don't need to drive and can take the bus when celebrating.

What’s the point in a shooting if nobody got shot?

18 years old and a juvenile? Y'all bad at math.

The thing is good people sometimes do stupid and bad things.

Free you bro til it’s backwards

If ppl knew the laws y’all would kno he’s not the shooter😂😂 I don’t see no anger or control problem here because once again the way he’s charged he was not the shooter u can’t control what the next person do🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️🤷🏿‍♂️

Open carry in Virginia is 18..... he has the right to carry a gun....

These young boys prayers

*****Update*****
Roads are open, lets all drive safe and keep them that way.
Special thanks to the Harrisonburg Fire Department, Harrisonburg Rescue Squad, Inc. and tow truck drivers everywhere.

The temperature has dropped and bridges are beginning to freeze. Presently Reservoir Street east of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard is closed due to poor road conditions and multiple cars blocking the roadway. The intersection of Stone Spring Road and South Main Street is also tied up with a multiple car crash. HPD, HFD, the street department and VDOT are working to get things back to normal.

HPD Investigates Shots Fired:

This afternoon at approximately 3:19 pm, the Harrisonburg Police Department responded to the 400 Block of Cardinal Drive for a report of shots fired. Multiple callers reported hearing shots coming from a residence and then observed two males running from the scene.

Officers responded to the area and quickly secured the scene. Upon arrival it was determined the two male victims that were seen running from the scene were un-injured in the incident. Detectives with the HPD Criminal Investigations Division responded to process the scene and conduct a thorough investigation.

Akram Amer, 48, of Harrisonburg, was arrested and charged with two counts of brandishing a firearm, one count of reckless handling of a firearm and one count of discharging a firearm within Harrisonburg City limits. The firearm involved was seized and both victims were released at the scene. Amer is currently being held at the Rockingham County Regional Jail on an unsecured bond.

This police force is something special. Unfortunately due to some issues with a family member I have had to call on the HPD multiple times for help and they have always responded quickly and professionally. They are always respectful and go above and beyond by trying to help in ways other then just the call. Each time we have called them they have offered to help in addition to the immediate issue and continue to urge us to call them immediately if anything happens no matter how small. They are willing to put they’re lives in danger every day dealing with violent criminals or help a family with a troubled teenager. People take them for granted but they truly are heroes and deserve our support and more ( and a BIG raise) . Thank you to the Harrisonburg police department for all the big and little things you do, they don’t go unnoticed or unappreciated. Stay safe.

Thank you sirs for protecting our community. This training is just another tool on your belt to keep you safe.

Inclement Weather Operations and Response:

During inclement weather to more efficiently handle the sometimes overwhelming volume of traffic accidents and related traffic problems, the Harrisonburg Police Department would like to remind all citizens and motorists to consider some safety reminders:

1. Evaluate the risk of traveling during harsh weather conditions.
2. Allow enough travel time.
3. Clear your vehicle of snow and debris so that it may be seen by others.
4. Be sure you can see from inside your own vehicle. It is illegal to drive with an obstructed view.
5. All wheel drive and four-wheel drive are recommended. If you are in a crash and your vehicle is not equipped or considered safe for the road conditions, you may be held responsible.
6. Allow extra stopping distance.
7. Wear your safety belt.

If you’re involved in a traffic crash and there are no injuries, move vehicles off the roadway if possible and call 911 to report the accident, then follow the instructions of the emergency communicator.

If there is a delayed response or no response by police due to priority calls, exchange information for insurance purposes, then call your insurance company as soon as possible. If the crash involves injury immediately call 911 and do not move your vehicle, police will respond as a “priority” to your location.

Currently the Harrisonburg Police Department is operating under its inclement weather policy. Road conditions are hazardous, crash call volumes are high, and officers are responding to priority calls first.

During inclement weather delayed police response can be expected for non-priority calls for service.

Your safety is our number one priority!

Public Meeting to discuss Improvements to the Port Republic Road Corridor Scheduled for Wednesday, February 20, 2019 from 5:00-7:00 pm

I can't even get into my own neighborhood without having to loop around, come down South and then get on Main to go to Weaver. I'm Pissed that the city let all that development go onto Port with no thought at all. All they saw was $$$$$$

It doesn't need anything. The only thing this town needs someone who can properly program lights. They will spend thousands to do everything except fix the problems. Yes folks they will spend your money on creating more issues. Remember when we shipped the whole city council to California to study bike paths? 40000 i think it was. As if internet wasn't available to study. Of course it was but they needed vacations.

How the hell are they going to shorten travel time on Pott Road near JMU? Close the entrances to campus on Port Road is one suggestion.

No comment from me there going to do what they already know what they will do screw Harrisonburg

The results are in from the Brent Berry Food Drive "Can Challenge Event" held this past December! Congratulations to Bridgewater PD in 1st Place, Rockingham County Sheriff's Office in 2nd Place, HPD in 3rd Place and HFD in 4th Place. Award plaques were presented last night at the Public Safety Building by the Berry Family. Thank you to all involved for a great cause. ... See MoreSee Less

Harrisonburg Police Officer Kent Folsom represented HPD at the funeral service for VSP Trooper Lucas Dowell who tragically lost his life in the line of duty on February 4, 2019. Officer K. Folsom released the following statement after attending a very emotional ceremony for the fallen hero:

I was honored to represent Harrisonburg Police Department at the funeral in Chilhowie VA for Trooper Lucas Dowell, End of Watch at age 28. It was incredible, as hundreds of troopers, officers, deputies, firefighters, EMS medics, and the public paid their respects. We were reminded that the drug dealer did not TAKE Lucas’ life, Lucas GAVE it in service to his fellow man. Very moving testimonies were given by those who knew and loved him. The line of flashing red, white, and blue light bars atop so many vehicles was sadly beautiful.
Get this: brother and sister officers came from at least these states to pay respects:
CA DC FL GA IL IN KY LA MA MD MI NC NJ NY OH SC TX UT VT WI WV.
Hearing bagpipes and muffled drums, echo Taps from Heather Kelly, and the silence of a thousand interrupted by the rustle of a thousand salutes was so emotional, but hearing the final radio call from Appomattox dispatch where young Lucas did not answer was heart-wrenching.
Rest in peace, Trooper Dowell. We have the watch.

Officers Driver and Johnson took some time last week to take part in a backyard basketball game with a group of school aged boys. The basketball equipment the boys were using was beyond repair, so the officers took it upon themselves to take donations from fellow employees to purchase some new equipment. Donations from HPD staff and the Burgess Road Walmart were used to purchase a new hoop, basketballs and some other basketball equipment. The weather was a bit cold for a rematch, but the boys did invite officers back when it warms up. ... See MoreSee Less

Legislation signed in 1983 marked the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a federal holiday. In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service.

Each year, on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is observed as a "day on, not a day off."

Please be safe out there guys the men and women of Harrisonburg pd is trying to keep us safe and they can't do there jobs if people don't listen Harrisonburg officers are in my prayers

In Harrisonburg VA

Perhaps the City of Harrisonburg should start pretreating the roads like the county does. Harrisonburg always has the worst streets during snow. Always.

The snow has arrived causing slippery road conditions. If you can avoid traveling today, please stay home. If you have to be on the roads please drive with caution. ... See MoreSee Less

Harrisonburg Police Department

Update: HPD Requests Assistance Identifying Persons of Interest Related to Burglaries

Harrisonburg, Va. – The Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) and the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO) are currently investigating a series of burglaries that occurred in college housing over fall and winter break. At this time, 30 burglaries have been reported in college housing during the time frames of November 17th-26th, and December 15th-January 6th. The majority of these burglaries occurred at the Copper Beech Townhomes subdivision and the Aspen Heights Harrisonburg subdivision.

The HPD and RCSO are actively seeking information regarding these burglaries. Any information that leads to the arrest of an offender or the recovery of stolen property is eligible for a cash pay-out of up to $1,000 through the Crime Solvers program. In 2018 alone, Crime Solvers paid almost $5,000 to “tipsters” for providing valuable information about crimes that occurred in the Harrisonburg/Rockingham area. “Tipsters” can receive their reward without having to provide their name or ever having to testify in court.

Anyone with information about the identity of these individuals or who has information regarding the burglaries is encouraged to contact the HPD Major Crimes Unit at (540) 437-2640 or the RCSO Criminal Investigations Division at (540) 564-3800. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Solvers at (540) 574-5050 or text “HPD” plus their tip to CRIMES (274637).HPD Requests Assistance Identifying Persons of Interest Related to Burglaries

Harrisonburg, Va. – The Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) is currently investigating a series of burglaries that occurred on Copper Beech Circle in the Copper Beech Townhomes housing complex over Thanksgiving break. On the evening of December 24th and in the early morning of December 25th, a group of individuals was observed trespassing on the back decks of multiple residences in Copper Beech Townhomes.

The individuals were seen checking back doors and were able to gain entry into at least one residence. It is believed that these individuals could be linked to the burglaries that occurred in this same row of townhomes during Thanksgiving break. Attached are photos of the individuals during both time frames.

Students returning from winter break are encouraged to carefully check their residence for signs of unauthorized entry during their absence. Signs that you may have been a victim of a burglary can include the following: evidence of forced entry (damaged locks, broken windows, etc.), partially open windows with screens removed, missing items or items left that do not belong to you. HPD encourages all students to take a careful inventory of their belongings upon their arrival. If you believe that your residence may have been broken into over the holiday break, immediately call HPD at 540-434-4436 to make a report.

Anyone with information about the identity of these individuals or who has information regarding the burglaries is encouraged to contact the Major Crimes Unit at (540) 437-2640. To remain anonymous contact Crime Solvers at (540) 574-5050 or text “HPD” plus their tip to CRIMES (274637).

HPD Awarded V-STOP Grant

Harrisonburg, Va. – The Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) is pleased to announce that the Virginia STOP/Violence Against Women’s Act (V-STOP) Grant has once again been awarded to the department. The HPD first applied for this grant in 2015, and the grant was awarded in 2016; the grant is federally funded and must be reapplied for every three years. The V-STOP grant funds 75% of a full-time detective position at the HPD.

While the V-STOP detective position oversees a caseload of all reported violent crimes against women within the city of Harrisonburg, it is specifically focused on domestic violence against women. In 2016, the Harrisonburg Police Department received 404 domestic violence related calls-for-service; in 2017, that number was 399, and in 2018, HPD received 315 domestic violence related calls for service.

HPD’s current V-STOP detective is Detective Aaron Dove, who has been with the department since 2011. In addition to investigating violent crimes against women, Detective Dove serves as a facilitator in connecting the victims of these crimes with advocacy resources. Some of these resources are emergency lodging for female victims of domestic violence, assistance navigating the justice system as a victim through the Rockingham County Victim / Witness Program, and counseling services at the Collins Center.

For additional information regarding the V-STOP program or any of the organizations that HPD partners with regarding violence against women, please contact Detective Dove at 540-434-4436.
