Thank you Culpeper Times for covering this very special moment for our agency!

There is a growing trend nationwide of citizens receiving fraudulent phone calls from people claiming to be affiliated with law enforcement. Similar to the IRS scam, calls threatening that you’ll be arrested can be really stressful. They are designed to make people panic. You or someone you know might have received phone calls from someone claiming to be the Police Department, Sheriff’s Department, DEA or even the FBI. When you get calls like this don’t trust them. The caller demands money and threatens legal trouble if funds are not sent. Most alarming is that caller ID shows the name and phone number from a legitimate police agency. Neither the Culpeper Police Department nor any law enforcement agency will ever call someone demanding money. Even if the caller provides sensitive information (last four digits of social security number, address, date of birth, etc.) do not provide additional information to them; this is part of the scam. If you receive a call like this, do not send money. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call our Communications Center at 540-727-7900.

We have a blast at this year's Fireman's Parade! There were over 150 entries this year and we enjoyed seeing each one going down Main St!

***News Release*** Culpeper Police Disarm Suicidal Subject Using Less Lethal Technology On May 23, 2018 at approximately 8:37 pm, the Culpeper Police Department received a call from the Crisis Intervention Center located near Novant/UVA Health System-Culpeper Medical Center for a subject at this location with armed shotgun and threatening suicide. Upon arrival, Officer located at 22-year old male in the parking lot armed with a shotgun and experiencing a mental health crisis. The subject was pointing the shotgun at his head and threatening to kill himself if officers approached. Officers on scene utilized crisis intervention training and negotiated with the subject for over 40 minutes. The subject refused to drop the shotgun during these negotiation attempts. Officers on scene then deployed the less than lethal impact munitions or bean bag round striking the subject. The subject dropped the weapon, fell to the ground, and was taken into custody by officers on scene. Officers on scene administered first aid to the subject and he was treated for minor injuries at the hospital. No officers or civilians in the area were injured during this incident. Detectives from the Culpeper Police Department responded to process the scene and conduct a follow up investigation. After being taken into custody, the subject was evaluated by a mental health professional and is currently being treated for this mental health crisis at a mental health facility. Chief Jenkins stated, “We see our officers in critical and high stress situations on a regular basis and this just shows their level of professionalism.” Chief Jenkins added, “This is an excellent example of how crisis intervention training and less than lethal technology helped our officers resolve a very dangerous situation. This situation could have certainly ended badly, but our officers used the training they had received to resolve this incident without anyone getting seriously injured or killed. We are hopeful that this young man will receive the treatment that he needs to overcome the crisis he was facing last evening.” Chief Jenkins stated, “We also thank the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance during this incident.”

A train traveling at 55 miles per hour takes a mile—the length of 18 football fields or more—to come to a stop once the emergency brakes are applied. Avoid walking down railroad tracks or trying to slip through a railroad crossing that has the arm bars down, even if you think you have enough time to safety cross.
