PURCELLVILLE POLICE HOST POP (SICLE) WITH A COP EVENT

PURCELLVILLE, Va., July 15, 2020 — The Purcellville Police Department is pleased to host our first Pop (sicle) with a Cop event on Friday, July 24th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the Atlantic Union Bank located at 431 East Main Street (formerly Middleburg Bank). Due to the current COVID-19 situation, our traditional National Night Out events that were originally scheduled to take place on August 4th, which both the Department and our community members look forward to participating in every year, will not be taking place. However, the Purcellville Police Department wanted to find a way to continue that connection with our community members, but in a smaller, casual setting that did not promote large neighborhood gatherings. Based on our traditional “Coffee with a Cop” events, which encourage community members to engage in conversations with police officers in an informal, neutral space to build and grow relationships, Pop (sicle) with a Cop provides the opportunity for officers and citizens to converse and enjoy a favorite seasonal pleasure of Popsicles on a hot, summer day!

Residents are invited to join the Purcellville Police Department for a free Popsicle and some friendly conversation. A drive through option is available for those who want to just say a quick hello and take their Popsicle to go. Bicycles, strollers, and walk-throughs are also welcome. The Department will be following CDC guidelines, asking that attendees remember to social distance, and the wearing of masks is encouraged. We would like to thank Giant Food for the generous donation of delicious Popsicles for everyone to enjoy.

“With so many wonderful events understandably cancelled due to the coronavirus, we wanted to find a means to still positively interact with our Purcellville residents, but in a way that all those who wanted to attend could do so safely, regardless of their comfort level. Whether that be to stay and chat with us for a few minutes, or do a quick wave and greeting as you drive through and pick up your Popsicle. We look forward to seeing some familiar, and also hopefully new, faces,” stated Chief Cynthia McAlister.

This program originated from the national Coffee with a Cop initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, which aims to break down barriers between police officers and the citizens they serve. Coffee with a Cop brings law enforcement officers and the community members together over coffee (or Popsicles) to discuss issues and learn more about each other. The PPD hosts Coffee with a Cop events bi-monthly at various times and locations throughout the Town of Purcellville.

The Purcellville Police Department would like to remind residents to follow the “9 p.m. Routine” every night. This routine includes simple steps to help keep your home, vehicle, and valuables safe. Every evening at 9 p.m. before going to bed, please take a few minutes to ensure the following:

• All doors and windows are locked in your home, including the door between your house and garage.
• Vehicle windows are closed, and doors locked.
• Valuables are removed from your vehicle and taken inside, including wallet, keys, tools, and garage door opener. If valuables must remain in the vehicle, please remove them from plain view.
• Remember to close your overhead garage door.
• Turn on exterior lights.
• Make sure all toys, bicycles, etc. are safely stored inside the garage or home.
• Set home and car alarms.

While some criminals may break into a car or home even if locked, the majority are looking for easy targets, such as unlocked doors. Let’s not create opportunities for crime, and instead make safety a habit. Join us and be part of the #9pmRoutine every night.

Be aware of possible severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening!

POLICE DEPARTMENT TO COLLECT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR COMPLIANCE WITH COMMUNITY POLICING ACT

PURCELLVILLE, Va. July, 1, 2020 — The Virginia Community Policing Act, House Bill 1250, takes effect, today, July 1, 2020. This law requires law enforcement and State Police to collect certain information from drivers during all motor vehicle (traffic) and investigatory stops, and prohibits law enforcement officers and State Police from engaging in bias-based policing. The Department of State Police will create the Community Policing Reporting Database into which sheriffs, police forces, and State Police officers report certain data pertaining to these stops. The purpose of the database is to track and analyze traffic stops and complaints alleging use of excessive force to determine the existence and prevalence of the practice of bias-based profiling, and possible excessive use of force.

In order to comply with this new law, the Purcellville Police Department will need to collect additional information from drivers during a traffic or investigatory stop. Therefore, the public should be aware that our police officers will be asking supplementary questions during motor vehicle stops. The bill requires that each time a local law-enforcement officer or State Police officer stops a driver of a motor vehicle the officer must collect the following data based on the officer's observation or information provided to the officer by the driver:

• Race, ethnicity, age, and gender of the person stopped
• Reason for the stop
• Location of the stop
• Whether a warning, written citation, or summons was issued or whether any persons were arrested
• If a warning, written citation, or summons was issued or an arrest was made, the warning provided, violation charged, or crime charged
• Whether the vehicle or any person was searched

In addition to reporting the information required in the Community Policing Act, the Purcellville Police Department currently conducts internal investigations on any use of force by an officer to determine if excessive force was used. All reported citizen complaints regarding the conduct of a Purcellville police officer are investigated by the Department’s Internal Affairs section. In order to ensure transparency, the Purcellville Police Department’s Annual Report lists the number of complaints (both internal and external) filed on Department members, and the outcomes of each. We remain committed to ensure the safety and respect of all those we serve, and hold our officers accountable to the highest professional standards.
