Chief's Message

On behalf of the men and women of the Richmond Police Department, I welcome you to our new website.

In looking at ways to better communicate with our residents, we felt that having a more interactive and informative website would allow us to build upon one of our fundamental goals and that is to be a community-oriented police agency.

We are committed to providing our residents, business owners, and our many visitors to this city, an effective and professional law enforcement organization that enhances their quality of life.

Our mission statement is simple and to the point: “To protect and serve in partnership with the entire community.”

As your chief of police, I promise to keep you better informed, through this website, of our efforts to reduce crime, provide you current and relevant information, and to allow you easier access to the services we provide.

Respectfully,
David A. Teske
Chief of Police
