Our new 14 foot tall mural on the back of our Second Precinct at the Oceanfront.

* Lion represents strength, courage and valor of law enforcement officers and symbolized our protective role.

* the Thin Blue Line flag is a visual reminder of the police officers who form a "thin blue line" between the innocent and those intent on doing harm.

The Virginia Beach Police Department wants community members to be aware of a phone scam that is active in our area.

We have received reports that people have been receiving phone calls from individuals claiming to be members of our Police Department. The law enforcement impersonator has

Referred to the community member they are calling by name, and tells the community member they either have an outstanding warrant, or that they have missed a court appearance or jury duty.
The caller uses the name of a real VBPD officer.
The call appears to come from a legitimate VBPD phone number.
The caller will make demands for the community member to send payment by means of prepaid gift cards, prepaid debit cards or wire transfers in order to avoid jail time.

Scammers can generate a fake Caller ID (spoofing), which makes it appear that they are calling from a legitimate VBPD phone number in an attempt to gain the trust of whomever they are calling. When a payment is made to a scammer using prepaid gift cards or wire transfers in this fashion, it is very difficult to get that money back, as they typically access the funds right away.

We want to remind everyone in our community that the Virginia Beach Police Department, or any other legitimate law enforcement agency will not call community members seeking payment for outstanding traffic citations or warrants.


Tips to avoid becoming a victim of this type of scam include:


Ask for the callers' identity and contact us independently. Do not call the number that appears on your caller ID.
Do not discuss personal or financial information to unsolicited callers, or by e-mail.
Do not wire money or provide bank account numbers or other financial card numbers (credit, debit or any other prepaid cards) to anyone you do not know.
Stay private – regularly update privacy settings for social media sites. Scammers will often troll for personal information on Facebook, Twitter and other commonly used sites to make their stories more believable.
If you receive a similar call, disconnect without providing any information or taking any instructions from the caller. If you are a resident of Virginia Beach and have fallen victim to one of these scams you are encouraged to call the Virginia Beach Police non-emergency number (757) 385-5000 to file a report.

VBPD Traffic Safety

VBPD Traffic Safety

In 2018, 9,778 of the 36,560 people killed in fatal crashes were unrestrained. That is 9,778 lives that could have possibly been saved if they would have taken the couple of seconds it takes to buckle their seatbelts.

• Wearing your seatbelt could prevent us from knocking on your family’s door.
• Wearing your seatbelt keeps you safe and secure inside of your vehicle.
• Failing to buckle up could result in you being ejected during a crash, which is often fatal.
• Improperly wearing your seatbelt, such as wearing your shoulder belt underneath of your arm increases your chances of significant internal injuries.
• Vehicle safety restraint systems, such as airbags are designed to work with seatbelts and failing to buckle up may result in serious injuries.

Virginia law requires seatbelts for all front seat passengers and is considered a civil offense punishable by a $25 fine. Virginia law requires everyone under the age of 17 to be properly restrained and is also a civil offense punishable by a $50 fine.

The Virginia Beach Police Department is partnering with Virginia DMV and the Click It Or Ticket campaign starting today through December 6th. We will be out in full force educating and enforcing the laws of Virginia.

This picture was taken during one of our Every 15 Minute presentations at a local high school to show students the dangers of driving under the influence and the importance of seat belts. No one sustained any injuries during this mock crash.

On a recent call for service, MPO Elizabeth Roys and MPO Jorwell Macapobre noticed an elderly resident's grass was quite high. When they asked the woman who cuts her grass, she explained that she has no family in the area and has no one to help.

The officers drove to a gas station, purchased gas for the woman's lawn mower, and then returned to cut and edge the yard and sweep the sidewalk. This is one of many examples which often go unseen where our officers go above and beyond the call of duty to care for the citizens and visitors of our city.

Outstanding work!

Speaking before a crowd of 5,000 people gathered at Arlington National Cemetery on May 30, 1868, President James A. Garfield memorialized the significance of the first Decoration Day (later known as Memorial Day). His words are as meaningful now as they were 151 years ago.

Today, we honor and remember the sacrifice of all service members who gave their lives to ensure our freedom. It is a debt which can never be repaid, but also one that will never be forgotten.

VBPD Traffic Safety

VBPD Traffic Safety

Did you know the Earth rotates at 1,000 MPH? We believe that’s another good reason to wear your seatbelt.

In 2017, 47% of the 37,133 people killed in fatal crashes were unrestrained. Wearing your seatbelt is the best defense in crashes. The consequences of failing to wear or improperly wear your seatbelt are very clear;

• Wearing your seatbelt keeps you safe and secure inside of your vehicle.
• Failing to buckle up could result in you being ejected during a crash, which is often fatal.
• Improperly wearing your seatbelt, such as wearing your shoulder belt underneath of your arm increases your chances of significant internal injuries.
• Vehicle safety restraint systems, such as airbags are designed to work with seatbelts and failing to buckle up may result in serious injuries.

Virginia law requires seatbelts for all front seat passengers and is considered a civil offense and is a $25 fine. Virginia law requires everyone under the age of 17 to be properly restrained and is also a civil offense and is a $50 fine.
