Community Policing & Accountability
bike rodeo4.jpg

In the 2018 National Citizen Survey, Vienna residents overwhelmingly expressed confidence in the safety of the community and services provided through the Vienna Police Department. Ninety-seven percent of survey respondents rated as excellent or good their overall feeling of safety in Vienna, and 90% rated services provided by the Vienna Police Department as excellent or good – both of these ratings are higher than most benchmarked communities across the country.

These strong ratings reflect, in part, the Vienna Police Department’s commitment to community policing. Community policing requires officers to interact with residents, shopkeepers, and visitors on a regular basis and to do so always with professionalism and accountability. Community policing means that our police officers are an integral part of the Vienna community.

As police tactics across the country are being examined, discussed, and modified as part of our nation’s reckoning with racial injustice, the Vienna Police Department remains committed to reasonable responses to resistance, equitable treatment of people of all races, and regular review of its policies and procedures. The Vienna Police Department is committed to ensuring that Vienna continues to be a safe and welcoming community.
