In a new series titled "Reality Over Rhetoric," we hope to clear up some of the most common misconceptions surrounding the role of SROs.

The reality is that carefully selected, specifically trained, and properly equipped SROs protect and serve students, bridge the gap between law enforcement and youth, and are a positive addition to the community.

PGPD Proud!

Lt. Earl Crawford took advantage of a rare opportunity to get our entire “D Shift” team in one place, at one time, for a quick pic. “D” Shift is one of our two night shifts. These are half of your uniformed officers that work between the approximate hours of 6p to 6a, 24/7. When the stars line-up just right, we hope to showcase “C Shift”, the other half of our nocturnal, uniformed team soon.

We have had, and we will continue to have, some of our treasured, veteran officers retiring – this is a time for celebration. As always in this profession, we experience some transitions for a variety of other reasons as well. At any rate, most of the members of this shift have been with us for roughly five years or less. Rest easy though, ALL of these officers have brought with them many combined years of valued, prior law-enforcement experience from other places throughout our region.

This team brings with them interesting, diverse professional and personal backgrounds. Among them are at least one faith leader, a prior college football player, military veterans, a mother, fathers, a bi-lingual officer, and much, much more. Clearly, the rock-star of this group is pictured bottom right.

They are all very much unified with their love of our community, each other, and our mission to serve and protect PG; these are the primary reasons they chose PG for a career.

They all look serious, but they are a lot of fun.

By the way, we are still hiring!

(Prince George, VA) – Catalytic Converter Thefts

Prince George County is experiencing ongoing criminal activity directly related to the theft of catalytic converters - our latest theft was reported yesterday. These converters contain valuable metals that can be recycled for cash. Most of the vehicles being targeted in the County are older model Ford and Chevy products, but other vehicles are vulnerable as these thefts are mostly crimes of opportunity. Catalytic converters are an exhaust emission control device that is located on the underside of cars and trucks; this device is situated between the engine and the muffler.

Converter theft is a nationwide trend, but you can take steps to defend your property from this crime. Consider the following mitigating factors:

- If possible, park your vehicle inside a locked structure.
- Park your vehicle in a well-lit area, near motion lights, or near cameras that will alert you.
- If you have a car alarm, make sure it will audible activate with motion.
- Place a unique identifiable mark on your converter.
- Install an anti-theft device on your converter.
- Contact your insurance company and verify that you are covered for this type of theft.
- Be alert for unusual noises, especially power tools, at any time but especially at night. A thief with a lithium-powered Sawzall can remove a converter in under two minutes.

Any information related to these thefts can be reported to the Prince George Police Department at (804) 733-2773 or Crime Solvers at 733-2777. You can also remain anonymous by using our P3tips app. As always, we encourage any observed, suspicious activity to be reported immediately. We need your help to locate and arrest these criminals!

The officers who rescued Daniels said that there's no greater feeling than knowing they made a difference in someone's life.

"It's something I'll never forget as long as I live and just to know it had a happy ending. Thank you," Officer Kelly Borshch, one of the rescuers with the police department, said.

On May 24th, at approximately 12:20 hours, officers were dispatched to the 5300 block of Courthouse Rd regarding a single motor vehicle crash with entrapment.

Officers arrived on the scene and located a vehicle on the right side of the road entirely on fire and the female driver lying on the side of the road. She advised that her boyfriend was still in the vehicle. Officers heard screams from the passenger side of the vehicle. Officer approached the passenger side of the vehicle in an attempt to get to the male party. Officers could utilize fire extinguishers to extinguish the fire enough to remove the passenger from the engulfed vehicle.

The male was then carried by officers to the embankment and provided first aid. The female was transported to SRMC, and Med-Fight transported the male to MCV.

Tonight the county recognized these officers!

From the Chief’s Desk:

Employee of the Quarter – 911/Emergency Communications Center

Realizing that we have the very best Emergency Communications Center (ECC) on the planet, we want to showcase the exceptional performances of one of these individuals each quarter. We have a great Public Safety Team, and we want to expand meaningful, well-earned opportunities to highlight their dedicated service. These people are more than just employees; they have a passion to serve our beloved PG community.

Our ECC is comprised of a manager, two supervisors and fourteen communications officers. Our ECC is the 24/7/365 central nervous system for all of our Prince George County public safety operations. This group of men and women perform a very critical, difficult, stressful, rewarding service for our community and all of our public safety personnel. They are an awesome group of people. We hope you will join us in showing them some love and appreciation.

We are very pleased to announce Communications Officer Christopher “Riley” Rakes as our very first ECC “Employee of the Quarter.”

“Riley” joined our Team in 2019. Riley has taken to this difficult job like a fish to water. He has received several commendations for his quick thinking and overall performances. He maintains an incredible awareness of every event occurring while thinking, predicting and planning on what could occur next. His customer service and calmness while dealing with 9-1-1 and non-emergency callers are outstanding. Additionally, Riley is already effectively training new personnel. As ECC Manager Chad Bosserman stated, “Rakes is known for his energetic vibes and his daily greeting to everyone with a chipper gooood morning.”

Please join me with recognizing and appreciating CO Rakes for all of his contributions.

Thank you PG County Police Dept. for your great heroism and protection. You are so appreciated. Praying for your safety. 🙏💙God bless you all. #pgpolice #backthebluealways
a great lunch crowd.... good food and good friends.....
What a great job Lt Burroughs (not Perez) and Officer Vasquez did for our motorcycle ride today. The entire crew did great. Totally appreciate the support y'all provided for Jordan's Ride. She would have been awed at both the turnout and the professional manner in which it was executed. The men in blue came through for us again.
Is this one of yours??????
How is it on 156 around standard motor products...is there power
This afternoon I stopped at what looked like a license check. Such a wonderful gesture as the officers were stopping drivers to offer complimentary face masks and hand sanitizer. Thank you for all that you do Prince George Police Department!!!! What a great surprise!!!

What say PGPD? Will you be making a similar statement to put citizens at ease?
I’m very disappointed in dispatch when I called this Monday morning at 4:52 am. My dogs managed to bring in a stray Staffordshire/pitty mix into the house through the doggy door. My male dog & this stray got very aggressive so I kept them apart thinking if I call the police an officer would come and get the dog as it was very friendly. They have done it before, if animal control wasn’t available. When I called, the woman said no one could come from animal control until they open up at 8:30. I told her the dog is not getting along with my male dog. She told me to open the door and let the dog out. So if gets hit on the road? I’ve never seen this dog in the neighborhood. It’s well taken care of, this is someone’s baby!
Very disappointed with dispatch attitude this morning. I called because my two dogs managed to bring in a lost dog. A Staffordshire
