When you join the Fredericksburg Police Department, you’re not just starting a career, you’re joining our family. Our patrol and communications shifts work closely together and form a strong bond. Patrol Lieutenant Lynch and Communications Supervisor Lambert recently talked on camera about the bond their shifts have forged and the tradition of “Sunday Night Dinners.”
We are proud of the women who took an oath to serve and protect the City of Fredericksburg. Here's a video highlighting their dedication.
Officer Joe Porter joined the Fredericksburg Police Department in July of 2016. After serving in the Navy and starting his law enforcement career in Portsmouth, Virginia, Officer Porter returned to his hometown and joined the Fredericksburg Police Department.
In September 2018, the City of Fredericksburg's Watershed Manager and Stafford County's Swift Water Rescue Team joined together to install a “mile marker” system along the Rappahannock River to help people pinpoint their location when using the river for recreation. This brief video highlights the project, explains how the mile markers work, and how they benefit first responders as well as people who enjoy the river recreationally.
We are proud to employ 26 veterans from all five military branches. Four of our officers, who were prior military and graduated from the police academy together in the spring of 2017, recently shared why they chose a career in law enforcement after leaving the military. Camaraderie. Greater good. Family. Serving your country and community – that’s what you’ll find at the Fredericksburg Police Department.
Communications Officers are the voice on the other end of the line that is there for you when you need them the most.
