Message from the Chief of Police
On behalf of the men and women of the Wytheville Police Department, thank you for taking the time to learn about our organization. I am honored to have the privilege of serving the community and as the police chief, I invite you to browse our Facebook and familiarize yourself with the various dimensions of our department. My hope is that utilizing social media will provide useful and interesting information about the police department and the services we currently provide.
The dedicated professionals of Wytheville PD serve a population of nearly 8,000 town citizens and thousands of visitors daily. The members of the Wytheville Police Department truly care about the safety of our community and providing excellent customer service. Our staff responds to the public safety needs of the community with the most effective measures available within our existing resources with the primary focus of ensuring the safety and well-being of our citizens and visitors.
Our policing philosophy balances a foundation of traditional policing concepts with innovative and progressive methods to help evolve with our citizens into the future. Community problems are often best addressed by working in partnership with citizens; therefore, Wytheville PD will continually strive to improve public relations and increase public confidence. Hence our motto; Positive Community Partnerships Make for Lasting Community Relations.
As your chief of police, I will always listen to your needs and strive to be open and honest with community members as well as the men and women with whom I serve. I believe maintaining a high level of professionalism within the police department serves to maintain the quality of public safety citizens deserve and fosters collaborative efforts which result in constantly improving community relations.
As Community members, you should know that your town administration-including our town manager, mayor and town council-have made an uncompromising commitment to public safety in Wytheville. I share this commitment as do the men and women of the Wytheville Police Department.
