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

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 $$$$$$

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.

Thank you for keeping us safe <3

Thank you for protecting us!

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

Glad you got her!!! Good job!!!

probably ain't nowhere to be found if she did all that.

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." MLK Day of Service is intended to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."

Arresting black people for low level marijuana offenses. No wait that’s the cops.

I do remember that the name change from Smith creek parkway to Martin Luther king Jr parkway cost us business owners a lot of money, but we got through it and for a good cause.

People please stop with the snide remarks about people not needing to be on the road. Most have to work others had to work to late to pick up things they didn’t have. Most of our health care has to be there period. I did it to many years but I know most would not be out other wise So just pray for all and judge none

I'm in the health field and my people count on me..so I have to travel..

Just slow down people. It is better to get there late and safe!

Glad everyone is safe with no injuries ❤️

I work healthcare so people's lives are in my hands. I'm thankful I can stay at my job tonight.

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.

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.

I will NEVER understand why people drink and drive, NEVER. JUST DON'T. Why are people so dumb? 😟😢😡

What's the truth about Santa? 🤔😟

True. Man-child ONLY run for President.

Harsher laws need to be handed out .

With a black population of less than 10% and most DUI arrests in the city being arrests of white males, why in the world would this be the depiction the department has chosen to portray to the public? Really?

Exactly no excuse

A public message from HPD Chief Eric English:
I am aware that there has been a lot of conversation concerning an incident early Sunday morning along with a video that was disseminated that involved the Harrisonburg Police Department that lead to the arrest of three people. The incident itself was unfortunate and escalated to a point that it should not have. However, that escalation was not a result of the actions of HPD.
I want to be clear that it is my goal to build positive relationships with our community. We strive to do that through communication, collaboration, and cooperation. I do not want the interaction between citizens and HPD to be the norm in our city as it was in this incident. I also do not want it to be the norm for incidents to occur and individuals to rush to judgement. Communication is key for us to close those gaps of distrust and I welcome communication with our citizens.
To ensure that people have a clear picture of what occurred I am making the body worn camera footage available. This is also not the norm, as release of video is not going to be a standard procedure. Due to the need for clarification in this incident I am making this particular video available. Please note that some elements of the video were required by state code to be redacted due to the age of individuals, so you will see some items “blacked out” and some portions of sound muted. Two videos are being disseminated to address clarity in this incident as they came from two different body worn cameras.
I am hopeful that people will get a better understanding of this incident and that we can continue to try to build those bridges between law enforcement and community.

Harrisonburg Among Cities Receiving “Bitcoin Bomb Threat

Harrisonburg, Va. – On December 13, at approximately 1:00 p.m. several businesses and organizations within the city of Harrisonburg received bomb threat e-mails threatening that explosives will detonate if money is not paid. It appears the same e-mail or very similar worded e-mails have been received at numerous government offices, academic institutions, and commercial retailers nationwide.

The Harrisonburg Police Department wants to let the public know there isn't any credible evidence related to these email bomb threats.

The bomb threats have each demanded that $20,000 be sent in Bitcoin. The e-mails appear to be very poorly written with several grammatical errors and have circulated through many businesses and organizations in Harrisonburg, including the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Emergency Communications Center (HRECC).

HPD encourages those who think they have received a bomb threat e-mail to contact ECC at their non-emergency number, (540) 434-4436, to confirm this is the same type of threat as described above.

Also, if you receive a bomb threat type of email, you should follow company procedures, such as looking through your business for suspicious packages. If you find anything suspicious, contact the police immediately.

This also happened in some government offices in Tennessee today. I have a friend who works for the state of Tennessee and she told me this evening about it

Several grammatical errors and poorly written could be ANYONE in Rockingham Co. Just because they are poorly educated, doesn't always mean its not credible. Just a thought.

Thank you for keeping the community informed about what is going on and what to do.

How do we catch this scum sending these?

Pathetic people. Can we just be jolly its the holiday season.

What can you do with a bitcoin?

I received an email with threats and to make payment of $1,000.00 to Bitcoin. Mine was not a bomb threat.

HPD Inclement Weather Operations and Response:

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 report and non-priority calls for service.

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 sufficient travel time.
3. Clear your vehicle of snow and debris so that it may be seen by others.
4. Be sure you are able to see from inside your own vehicle. It is illegal to drive with an obstructed view.
5. All-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles 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 for extra stopping distance.
7. Wear your safety belt.

If you are in a crash and there are no injuries, move your vehicles off the roadway and call 911 to report the accident. Follow the instructions provided by 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.

HPD Investigates Breaking and Entering:

This morning at approximately 05:10, the Harrisonburg Police Department responded to the 1000 Block of Lois Lane for a traffic crash into a structure. The caller reported the vehicle had fled the scene traveling in an unknown direction. While responding to the residence, an officer observed a vehicle with heavy front end damage traveling at a high rate of speed coming from the area where the crash had occurred.

The Officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle; however, the driver failed to stop and entered Interstate 81 traveling northbound. The suspect vehicle then exited the Interstate at the E. Market Street interchange and continued traveling onto Linda Lane. The Officer continued to follow the vehicle until it crashed into a utility pole on Smithland Road.

The driver was identified as Jorge Justin Tejeda Molina, 18, of Harrisonburg. Investigation concluded Tejeda Molina had intentionally crashed the vehicle into the residence on Lois Lane in an attempt to cause bodily injury to the occupants. After breaking and entering the residence and committing assault and battery to the occupants, Tejeda Molina then fled the scene driving the same vehicle.

Jorge Justin Tejeda Molina was transported to the University of Virginia Medical Center for treatment of unknown injuries. Felony warrants have been obtained for breaking and entering, property damage, attempted malicious wounding, assault and battery and eluding a police officer. Arrest and warrant service is pending release from medical care.

No serious injuries were reported at the residence and the Harrisonburg Fire Department has secured the building which is still safe and habitable.

The Harrisonburg Police Department asks that if you witnessed the crash, or have further information, to please call the non-emergency number at (540) 434-4436.

Way to go officer Drugo!!!

So proud of our Police Department <3

Can you ID this person? There may be a reward for you! This male is possibly a resident or person who frequents the Harrisonburg area.HPD is currently investigating a credit card fraud where the victim’s information was compromised and then used at an ATM.

This case is similar to other recent cloned card cases that are also being investigated, but it is not believed to be related.

The suspect is described as of Hispanic or middle eastern descent with a thin goatee in his late 30’s to early 40’s.

Anyone who may be able to identify this male is asked to contact HPD at (540) 437-2640. Those who wish to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at (540) 574-5050 or by texting “HPD” plus their tip to CRIMES (274637).

You would think that a machine that holds and dispenses money would be equipped with a decent camera. What do I know, I’m just a stupid truck driver though.

HPD you will eventually nab him, as you have arrested MANY others. Thank you for all that you do to keep us safe. You do a fantastic job Prayers to keep you safe.

Almost looks like Jerry Botkin could be wrong tho..

i can find out who it is...but i take payment up front....

He looks like a customer who comes to Dayton Walmart between 10pm and 7am

Hope someone will turn him in..........

Heads up! We are investigating several "cloned card" cases. When a card is “cloned” the victim is still in possession of the card, but the card is being used elsewhere by a suspect.

On October 6, a victim reported this type of situation to HPD. The victim was still in possession of their card when it was used by two suspects at Kohl’s in Harrisonburg for several hundred dollars-worth of merchandise. The two suspects, pictured, are described as Hispanic males in their 40’s. HPD is encouraging anyone with information about these men or their crimes to report it.

It is important for business owners and employees to be cautious of this type of activity. Generally, a suspect will use a card until the fraudulent activity is caught by the banking institution. If you see a person swiping several cards to get a purchase to go through, it may be prudent to alert your manager or to request an ID from the customer before continuing the transaction.

😡

It is 2018, why can’t places install higher resolution cameras by now?

I feel employees need to card customers every time NO matter what , but never see it 😭😭😭😭

All stores should ask to see u driver or photo ID if useing a card

they should do like in virginia beach everywhere you go they ask for ID even if you have a Debit card on any store or Restaurant to buy anything.

These stores have the worse cameras I have ever seen...

That’s okay, let’s not judge miss phoebe for being so judgmental and quick to assume. Then we’re no better

Eric Wayne Rowe I bet this is what happened with your card!!!

Android camera quality 😂

Although I agree they should ask for ID it is not required for you to show it. This needs to be changed

You would think stores would have better security cameras by now.

Imagine that here Hispanic thugs no way

Package thefts are crimes of opportunity.
HPD would like to remind citizens to take extra care this time of year, when having mail and packages delivered to their residence. Package thefts from doorsteps and front porches during the day are the most common target.

Here are steps you can take to be proactive in keeping your packages safe from theft.
1. Encourage family and neighbors to pick up packages as soon as possible after they are delivered.
2. Track your packages and try to be present at the time of their delivery.
3. Have your package delivered to your place of business.
4. Request for your package to require a signature for delivery rather than allowing the carrier to simply leave it at your door.
5. If you discover you will not be home when the package is going to be delivered you may be able to re-route or reschedule the delivery.
6. Insure your online shipments especially if they are expensive.
7. Be aware of strange people or vehicles in your neighborhood and call the police when you see someone or something suspicious.
8. If you have a good working relationship with your delivery person, discuss alternate drop-off locations at your home or business that are less conspicuous.

Someone should inform the US Postal Service that they shouldn't be leaving packages at closed businesses or after hours. Personal residence is one thing.... but you know that package is going to be there for some time at a business.

Harrisonburg Police Department Community Walk

Harrisonburg, VA – On Tuesday, November 20th at 6:00 pm Officers with the Harrisonburg Police Department, along with other city departments, will be participating in a community walk. This event provides an opportunity for officers and other community stakeholders to go door to door and connect with residents through conversation.

The focus area of the walk will be HPD’s District 2 locations, to include the 200 block of Chicago Ave, 400 block of Green St, and the 400 block of West Wolfe Street. This is the first of many community walks which are expected to take place in the coming months.
HPD encourages community members to not only walk with us, but also to 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 people 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 the community engagement and dialogue to the citizens, in their neighborhoods, giving everyone a chance to discuss issues and learn more about each other.”

Remember to stay up to date with road closures, breaking news, crime prevention tips, and community events by following us on Twitter @HarrisonburgPD or Facebook at HarrisonburgPoliceDepartment.

Recently a local Harrisonburg family found out they fell victim of an internet scam involving an advertisement on Craig's List involving a listing for a rental property in the City of Harrisonburg.

After working very hard over the past year trying to save money anywhere possible yet still providing the best possible for their family of eight, these City residents thought they had come across the rental property they had been waiting for.

Little did they know, the advertisement was a scam. The offender requested a large amount of cash to be wired to him as deposit in return for the keys to the residence. After wiring the money to the offender there was no further contact from them prompting their visit to Old Dominion Realty, whose sign was stolen and used by the perpetrators by placing it in the yard of the residence. This is when they were informed of the scam leaving the family with little to nothing to spare nearing the upcoming Holiday Season.

Old Dominion Realty employees took it upon themselves to soften the impact of this crime committed against the family and raised enough money to return the entire amount this family lost plus some additional cash to help alleviate this hardship they encountered.

HPD Officer's were proud to experience this random act of kindness and assist Old Dominion Realty in making contact with the family.

This is when they were informed of the scam leaving the family with little to nothing to spare nearing the upcoming Holiday Season. 

Old Dominion Realty employees took it upon themselves to soften the impact of this crime committed against the family and raised enough money to return the entire amount this family lost plus some additional cash to help alleviate this hardship they encountered. 

HPD Officers were proud to experience this random act of kindness and assist Old Dominion Realty in making contact with the family.

HPD Urges Citizens to Vaccinate Household Pets

Harrisonburg, Va. – Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) is seeing a rise in calls for service related to possible rabid animals, mainly raccoons, and foxes. According to HPD Animal Care Officer Geoffrey Bechtel, the symptoms of rabies can often mirror the symptoms of the distemper virus, which has been making its rounds through the local wildlife population. The animal may appear disoriented, abnormally aggressive or fearful, and may have seizures. “It is not possible to tell if the animal has one of these viruses or some other medical condition without laboratory testing,” Bechtel added.

It is very important to keep household pets up to date on vaccinations, as these diseases can pass from wildlife to unvaccinated, domesticated animals. Additionally, HPD reminds residents that it is important to leave wildlife alone and not to interact with any animal that appears sick or injured. Officers are trained to respond to animal calls for service and urge citizens to call police when they see wildlife in trouble or acting unusual.

“If you suspect that a wild animal may be rabid, sick, or in danger, give us a call,” Bechtel concluded.

Citizens can call the Harrisonburg Police Department’s non-emergency number at 540-434-4436 if they suspect that a wild animal may be rabid, 911 if it is an emergency, or contact HPD’s Animal Care and Control Officer at 540-437-2600 if they have questions regarding vaccination requirements for household pets in the City of Harrisonburg.

Rabies vaccinations are killing our pets. Local gov't agencies require us to give multiple vaccinations when only one is sufficient. One rabies shot will last a dog it's lifetime and the high dosage is the same for a Great Dane that it is for a Chiuauah. I won't watch my dog die again from multiple rabies vaccinations.

Don't forget that barn cats need to be vaccinated too!

I'm up to date on both dogs and 3 cats.

Does distemper cause foxes, raccoons and skunks to appear regularly during daylight when they are normally nocturnal animals?

I honestly cannot believe the judgment and harsh comments spewing off of this feed. It makes me sick to my stomach and this is what’s wrong with the world. How does one fall asleep behind a wheel?? Really? Maybe that person is a single parent working long hours and taking care of his/her family non stop, maybe that person is putting themselves through college and full time job and full time school are piling up, maybe the person has a medical issue or is sick with something that made them tired. So instead of being “mad” your power went out because someone was in an accident have some compassion! This person could have (if not did) lost their life. So sick to read these comments

Not happy I lost my side fan.. the dead silence woke me up.

Oh, you have people there who can’t drive?

UPDATED - HPD Investigates Traffic Crash Involving Pedestrian:

On Wednesday, October 31, 2018 at approximately 06:29 the Harrisonburg Police Department along with local Fire and Rescue agencies responded to the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and S. Main Street, Harrisonburg for a report of a traffic crash involving a pedestrian. The female victim, identified as a 21 year old local college student, was traveling South on S. Main Street and was crossing the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way via the crosswalk on a Bird motorized scooter. Multiple witnesses at the scene reported that an older model Dark Green Toyota Camry entered the intersection and failed to yield right of way to the crosswalk sign resulting in the vehicle colliding with the scooter. The driver of the vehicle then failed to stop at the scene of the accident and continued traveling East on Martin Luther King Jr. Way. The victim sustained serious injuries and has been transported by helicopter to the University of Virginia Medical Center.

After investigation, the suspect driver has been identified as Jacinto Perez Lopez of Harrisonburg and has been charged with Felony Hit and Run. Mr. Perez Lopez turned himself into the Harrisonburg Police Department lobby approximately two hours after the crash and has since been arrested and being held without bond at the Rockingham County Regional Jail.

The Harrisonburg Police Department asks that if you were in the area at the time of the crash or have further information related to this case to please call the non-emergency number (540) 434-4436.

We know this isn't the best quality photograph, however, hopefully someone will know this guy and help us out!

He was involved in a credit card fraud that occurred at Kroger in Harrisonburg on October 6, 2018.

The victim reported that the card was still in their possession, so it is likely that the card was recently used where a card skimmer was attached to the reader. The location where the information was compromised is still unknown. The suspect also had the victim’s PIN number and was able to successfully use the card at an ATM to withdraw funds.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 40’s or early 50’s. At the time of the offense he was wearing a black t-shirt, green shorts, and tan shoes, with a very short hair cut. Furthermore, he appears to be around 6 feet tall and about 220 pounds.

If you think you may know this person, or have helpful information- reach out to Crime Solvers! Information leading to an arrest is eligible for a monetary reward. You can call Crime Solvers at 540-574-5050 or text "HPD" plus your time to CRIMES 274637.

I’m not sure it’s the same person mentioned in this post or not but there is also someone going around and purchasing money orders using stolen debit card information and PIN numbers. I know it’s been a couple of cases that happened over the weekend.
