Henrico police assessment underway

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Henrico Police Department is being evaluated for re-accreditation.

An independent panel will look at policies and procedures like pursuits, how they handle complaints and their hiring practices.

The police department goes through this process every three years and Police Chief H.W. Stanley says it's helpful having someone from the outside evaluate the department.
