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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

Y tenemos q hacernos a la poca orrilla q hay mis niños y yo cuando los llevo al autobus de la escuela port republic y hillcrest

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!!!

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).

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).

***Update: Two arrest made in connection with shooting ****

HPD Investigating Shooting in Harrisonburg

HARRISONBURG, Va. – Officers with the Harrisonburg Police Department (HPD) responded to the 400 block of South Main Street on Sunday, July 14, at approximately 6:30 p.m. for a complaint of two victims with gunshot wounds. The Emergency Communication Center (ECC) received reports of shots fired on West Gratton Street around this time.

Day five of PATCH Camp brought the most difficult challenge yet with the JMU High Ropes Course sponsored by Steven Toyota. The squads gathered all of their strength after a power ring breakfast and accomplished great feats of courage and teamwork high in the air. Wood Grill provided a terrific lunch for all the campers and then the afternoon was spent at the driving track. Squad members rode in a police cruiser for a "hot lap" and felt the adrenaline of pursuit driving. Congratulations to the young men and women of PATCH Camp, all of HPD is proud of you and good luck in the future! ... See MoreSee Less

I’m always sad when I see these pictures... I wonder what his story is, how did his life take this turn. Somewhere inside is the little boy who laughed and played, who had dreams of a wonderful future...

Sad!! Heart breaking! I pray he is found safe and is able to get himself clean!!

He was a sweet young boy lived a couple houses up the road from me and used to play with my kids in the pool. 😢

He used to hang around Elkton (the Tannery Apts) and Grottoes

Back to prison.

Lol. He was standing in front of grottoes 7/11 less than a hour ago

Yeeeeee Haaaaaaaaa

SCAM ALERT: With the recent increase in residents falling victim to telephone scams here are a few quick and easy tips to follow:

1. Don't always believe your Caller ID: Scammers sometimes will "spoof" you by calling from what may appear to be a local number or a number belonging to a relative or local business. Never provide personal or financial information over the telephone until you fully verify the caller's legitimacy. Financial institutions and government officials (law enforcement, courts, the IRS or city offices) will never contact you by phone asking for your personal identification or for over the phone payment.

2. Never pay upfront for a promise: Someone may contact you asking you to cash a check and then wire them the money. In return they may only ask for a portion of the deposited amount back allowing you to keep the remaining balance. This is a way for scammers to gain your money and then once the "bad check" clears the bank your funds are gone as well as the deposited check.

3.Talk to someone you know and trust: If someone contacts you asking for financial assistance for someone you may know never immediately provide identifying information or any form of payment. Always make direct contact with the individual to verify the accuracy of the request before making any financial transactions. Law enforcement will never contact you by phone for missing Jury Duty asking you to make an immediate payment to avoid criminal charges or ask you to provide bail money for a friend or family member.

4. Be cautious of prepaid gift cards: Anyone who contacts you asking you to provide them with prepaid gift cards in return for a service or product such as debt relief, tax return settlements, loan offers, prizes or monetary winnings is likely a scam. Business cannot profit from this form of payment, therefore likely will never ask you to provide this type of information. Always verify an organizations legitimacy with your financial institution before proceeding with any form of debt consolidation or loan offers.

5. Be cautious when online: Always exercise caution when utilizing social media, online dating websites, and marketplace websites such as Craigs List. Never provide a form of payment prior to verifying the item in person and be sure to use privacy settings on social media platforms.

As always be sure to be cognizant of all electronic and telephone financial and personal information transactions. To report potential scams please contact the Federal Trade Commission by calling 1-888-225-5322.

very helpful information!

Any number I don't know from my caller ID, I answer the phone with "Fraud Division, how may we help you?" You'd be surprised at how fast "they" hang up. If they stay on and try to push a conversation, I respond with "we need your business ID number and employee number ID number" and I continue to ask questions as such til they hang up. Sure has cut down on the number of scam calls I use to get daily....lol

Thank you for a number to report potential scams. Certainly the DO NOT CALL list doesn't work....It would be great if something could be done to stop all of these calls.

I got a voicemail message Monday about "fraudulent activity on my social security number". But when we listened to it, it was obviously a robo-call, not a live person. I blocked and deleted the number. I get calls all the time. But I don't answer my phone -- sometimes they'll leave a message, and I very seldom call them back.

I don’t answered it unless someone I know!

I have been getting them!!!!

My husband got a call from his own number twice.... so obviously these scammers do cloning.

Hopefully not too far in the future something can actually be done to prevent scam calls

The quality of courage was the theme of the day for PATCH Camp day four. The squads experienced a Crisis Negotiations Team role play event and practiced communication and listening skills. The group moved out to Thomas Harrison Middle School where they learned about the equipment and formations used by the CDU Team. After a great lunch from Chic-Fil-A, the squads used their energy on mountain bikes and learned basic safety along with advanced techniques an officer uses on duty. Thanks to Kline's Ice Cream who provided a great treat at the end of a hot day! ... See MoreSee Less

The excitement built for day three of PATCH Camp as the HPD SWAT Team demonstrated their skills on the range and their tactics for building searches. The squads got to experience the same stress that on officer feels during these searches and all did an excellent job. A Firehouse Subs lunch in the shade was much appreciated by everyone. The day was also highlighted by the popular HPD K9 Unit with obstacle, drug searches, and bite work demonstrations. Officer Deeds visited the training grounds and showed what it takes to become a motorcycle officer. A great teamwork building game of "Capture the Flag" brought out the best in everybody at end the day. ... See MoreSee Less

Day two of PATCH Camp intensified with an overview of the Major Crimes Unit, digital forensics and the science behind evidence collection to build a successful case. After a great lunch of Domino's pizza, the squads worked on open field searches and experienced how technology helps law enforcement serve the community with drone and robot demonstrations. The day ended with information about criminal gangs and the two squads of campers are forming great relationships with each other and HPD staff. ... See MoreSee Less

NEW CAR SEAT LAW - IN EFFECT TODAY - JULY 1

Remember, a new car seat law went into effect today requiring toddlers to remain rear-facing in their car seats until they reach the age of two (2) or until they exceed the height or weight limit for the car seat, which can be found on the back of the seat. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children remain rear-facing as long as they can, within the parameters of their seat.

I’m confused. This says until they reach the minimum to forward face according to the car seat which most car seats are 22lbs to forward face. Y’all post until they exceed the weight limit of rear facing.

Where will their legs go once they out grow the baby car Seat?

Molly Austin Pence see this is the one that I had seen... it sounds as if the kid has to big to fit in a rear facing seat... not just meet the min for next size up... idk tho?

Volunteers are needed for an upcoming drill focused on emergency responder preparedness.
The drill, scheduled for Monday, July 8, at James Madison University’s Bridgeforth Stadium, will simulate a mass casualty incident. The goal is to demonstrate the ability of local, regional, private, nongovernmental and state partners to evacuate the stadium and respond to injuries. In this drill, participants will respond as if a natural gas explosion has taken place.

Volunteers of all ages are needed to fill the role of actors for the drill, and those younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Staff may apply mock injuries to some volunteers to assist in the simulation.

“This drill is a very important tool for emergency responders across our region,” Paul Helmuth, Harrisonburg Fire Department deputy emergency coordinator, said. “The public’s support will go a long way toward making sure we are prepared for emergency situations such as these.”
Those interested in participating should contact Helmuth at Paul.Helmuth@harrisonburgva.gov.

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.”

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.

Mr. and mrs. Doushbag reason why everything goes up.

Asking for money at any corner.

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

Is that a dog in the basket?

Same ones on the corner holding signs

Itchy and scratchy

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