CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – Chesterfield Police are currently investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred around 3 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14.
​At about 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 13, police responded to a residence in the 17100 block of Lansmill Drive to serve warrants for violating a protective order on a known adult male suspect. The suspect refused to come out of the home; an adult female was also in the residence. Police obtained a search warrant for the residence to locate the man, as well as additional arrest warrants for stalking and violation of a protective order.
​After several hours of negotiation with officers, the female came out of the residence at about 9 p.m. on Jan. 13. At that point, the male suspect stopped communicating with police. For the next several hours, officers used an array of technological resources to attempt to reestablish contact with the suspect and avoid a violent encounter. These efforts were unsuccessful.
​At about 2:57 a.m. on Jan. 14, after nearly 11 hours on scene, officers entered the residence to execute the search and arrest warrants. During the search, officers discovered a storage area where the suspect was hiding. The suspect immediately produced a weapon and fired shots at police. Police returned fire, striking the suspect. The suspect was later pronounced deceased at the scene.
​Police remain on scene and continue their investigation into this incident. Anyone with information should contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or through the P3 app.

Those big puffy coats are super cute, but they aren't the best option when strapping baby in a car seat. A lighter jacket and a blanket will result in a more snug fit.

One of the things we love most about working for Chesterfield County Police, is the support we get from the community. As a result, we have valuable partnerships that enable us to give back to those we serve. In December, an apartment fire displaced 6 families who lost everything. North CAP officers worked together to organize donations for the families to get them through the holidays during this difficult time. Many non-profit organizations, churches and retirement communities couldn’t wait to help. Hygiene kits, clothes, food, school supplies, toys and gift cards were provided by the YMCA, Sunrise Senior Living, Woodlake United Methodist, Journey Church, Richmond Radio 1 and Mercy Mall.
Thank you for continuing to support not only your officers, but also your neighbors. We really are better together.

We can't thank our staff and the public enough for the good work that was done last year. Thank you for sharing the posts when these animals needed homes and thank you to all the wonderful folks who took in these furry friends and helped us clear the shelter. And who could forget the donations of money, food, towels, supplies; we have a generous community.

To say 2020 was the most challenging year yet is an understatement! As with most shelters and rescues, we were faced with spay/neuter clinic closures, staffing shortages, increased challenges for our officers, and adjusting to appointment-style services. However, we were determined to adapt and overcome! 🙂

We attained an 86% save rate, up from 84% in 2019. Even though numbers don't tell the individual animal stories- the dog that overcome his fear of accepting love or the cat that was saved after being hit by a car- they are a testimony to the lives we were able to save each day. 🐾

We wish we could save them all, but the reality is- we can't. For some, the most humane option is euthanasia due to critical illness or injuries. For some, the risk of adoption is too great due to severe aggression concerns.

We want to graciously thank our rescue partners who transfer large numbers of animals into their care and our community members who selflessly opened their home to a new family member! 🐶🐱

Today, Corporal Paul Jenkins retires from the Chesterfield County Police Department, having served over 26 years; 20 years as a motorcycle officer. During this time, he volunteered as a general instructor, field training officer, radar instructor, rifle operator, Special Response Team member and Crash Team member.
His passion for traffic safety is evident from the numerous certifications he has held, and the many years he has served on the traffic team. Corporal Jenkins is a legend in the motor officer world around here; at one point, he was the only motor operator instructor for the department. He will be leaving big shoes to fill in the traffic unit and he will surely be missed.
We wish Corporal Jenkins all the best in retirement and his future endeavors. Congratulations!

We'll gladly see 2020 out the door, but we have to admit, we had some high points this year. The addition of our bloodhounds; the resolution to many major crimes; the removal of numerous intoxicated drivers from the roadway; reaching full staffing...the list goes on. We hope you can take this last day of the year to reflect on even the smallest of high points you or your family have experienced. Here's to 2021.

Imagine that. One of the billboards we put up nationwide - this one in Seattle - has already been defaced. Apparently, there are folks who wish to thwart our efforts to fill the hearts of deserving public servants with love, hope, and gratitude.

If you’re so inclined, I ask you to join me in praying for those who elected to spend their Christmas Eve acting out in such a destructive way. They chose to expend their energy denying other people - complete strangers - of something positive: gratitude.

If they wish to deny us the opportunity to share this message via billboard (yes, a new one is going back up), then please do me a favor and help spread this message digitally.

Messages of love are worth spreading - especially when people are committed to silencing them.

Thank You, Officers!
