The ability of a police department to efficiently and effectively handle the enormous amount of data and paperwork generated by its officers and activities is paramount to it's success. Law enforcement agencies have a special obligation to insure that it's administrative duties are handled correctly. Law enforcement documentation and reports are routinely subpoenaed into court and can mean the success or failure of prosecution of criminal and civil cases.
The administrative secretary for the Police Department is Jo Ann Smith. Jo Ann is a critical component to the departments day to day operations. Jo Ann processes all paperwork concerning personnel matters within the department along with all reports generated by the departments officers including incident reports, accident reports, arrest data and traffic summons.
Reports such as accident reports or incident reports required by citizens should be requested through the police administrative office at 540-965-6331. Some reports and information are confidential and may only be released upon submission of a subpoena by the court, therefore insure that you check with the administrative secretary to determine the requirements for obtaining information or reports from the department.
Appointments with the Interim Chief of Police should also be scheduled through the office of the Administrative Secretary.
