Richmond Police Tighten Take-Home Policy

July 23, 2009

RICHMOND, VA - The Richmond Police Department has tightened its take-home vehicle policy, giving priority to officers who live in the city, according to the Richmond Times Dispatch.

The new policy allows exceptions, but gives priority to take-home vehicles of officers who live in the city and establishes a 15-mile boundary from the city limits for officers who live elsewhere.

The previous policy did not limit take-home cars geographically, and take-home cars were authorized for officers living as far out as Fredericksburg, Jetersville, and Bumpass, the Dispatch reported.

The revised policy is expected to deter crime, since those authorized take-home vehicles are better located to respond quicker than officers residing outside of the city.
