What is Be RPD ? It is the story of all of us.
It is the shared story of everyone who strives to make a difference and impact their community: One Calling, One Team, One Mission, and One Community,
The Richmond Police Department’s officers and employees have diverse backgrounds and come from around the world. Together, they place us on the path leading from our present to our future. Our retirees built upon the foundations of those who came before, and their stories offer valuable lessons. Our families provide support and encourage us forward. We connect and partner with community stakeholders and businesses to make our communities safer and to allow everyone an opportunity to succeed.
The Richmond Police Departments Values, Accountability, Community-Focus, Innovation, Integrity, Professionalism, and Shared Trust, are beacons to timeless principles. As guardians, we are part of the social safety net. When emergencies occur our officers are warriors who run into the face of danger and willingly risk their lives to save those who they have never met.
You don’t have to be a police officer to make an impact. Everyone who strives to make a difference in our communities has his or her own unique role to play, to partner with us, and share in our story –
