Accredited Agency

On behalf of the men and women of the Town of Purcellville Police Department, I welcome you to our web page. Our Police Department prides itself on providing 24 hour, 7 days a week patrol coverage to the Town. Patrol officers are first responders to all law enforcement calls for service within the Town of Purcellville. Our patrol officers enforce traffic violations, investigate vehicle crashes, and manage traffic complaints. Officers also handle criminal investigations, domestic related events, service calls, and nuisance complaints. Our officers are committed to ensuring high quality of life standards are enjoyed by all who live, work or visit Purcellville.  

Community engagement is the cornerstone of our policing philosophy and we strongly believe in the partnership between the police and the public. Serving at the Police Department, there are sixteen sworn Police Officers, an Accreditation Manager, and an Administrative Assistant/Records Manager; our team collaborates with community members through the Volunteers in Police Services (VIPS) program. VIPS members support the department through a variety of activities including but not limited to Internships, Customer Service Specialists, Language Interpreters, Police Chaplains, Child Safety Seat Inspectors, and more.

Our mission is to provide law enforcement services in partnership with the community that ensure a safe environment with the highest quality of life for all residents, business owners, and visitors to enjoy.  We will continually reach for the highest moral and ethical standards, ensure the guarantee of constitutional rights, protect the community, and serve with pride. 

Our vision is to continue to provide excellent police services, combat crime, ensure the highest quality of life standards for all who live, work or visit Purcellville, and to continue building strong partnerships with the community we serve.
