Police Transparency & Accountability

The University of Richmond Police Department is taking a proactive role in demonstrating the integrity of our police officers and agency by providing an overview of our police-citizen interactions.  These steps provide valuable transparency to those we serve in our campus community.

We understand transparency builds trust.  Therefore, the information available here encompasses several specific areas of agency functionality:   

  1. Implementing policies that promote fair and impartial policing
  2. Collecting and analyzing field and traffic stop data
  3. Promoting guidelines for making citizen comments, complaints and inquiries
  4. Offering a Community Survey soliciting feedback from the community
  5. Community Advisory Board
  6. Virginia Community Policing Act Data Collection Site. Data consists of stops from Virginia law enforcement agencies.

These functions enhance our mission to contribute towards the quality of University life by fostering an environment in which security is balanced with freedom of movement and individual rights are balanced with community needs.  Thus, we work diligently in our efforts to develop and maintain positive community relations and trust with the diverse community we serve at the University of Richmond.
