Police

The mission of the Gordonsville Police Department is to protect persons and property by providing essential law enforcement and public safety services through high visibility community policing. 

Effective community policing requires the active participation of civic groups, business leaders, churches, schools, and other local government support agencies in addition to police personnel. We work to develop a close, interactive relationship between officers and community members with the goal of reducing crime and its effects. 

We always strive to ensure our personnel are operationally competent, and are able to convert policy and training into effective practice. The Gordonsville Police Department strives to be a model of community-based police practices. 

The Town of Gordonsville police department consists of five full-time officers supported by volunteer sworn auxiliary officers and one part-time civilian employee.  The office can be reached at 832-2234 in non-emergency situations. For emergencies, citizens should call 911.
