October is national Crime Prevention Month, and James City County Police Department (JCCPD) wants to take this opportunity to remind you of the many crime prevention programs and services available to residents and business managers.
Upon the resident’s request, patrol officers will increase patrols around your home when you are out of town. This is a FREE service and must be set up in advance by contacting the JCCPD at 757-259-5140, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. You may also submit your request online (hint: when completing the online registration form, your “city” should be James City County).
Drug Take Back
On Oct. 26, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., JCCPD, partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), will hold a prescription drug take back event at the Law Enforcement Center located at 4600 Opportunity Way. Through this program, citizens can turn over potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for destruction. The program is anonymous and no questions are asked.
Unable to attend on Oct. 26? Use the DEA search tool to locate a controlled substance public disposal location near you.
A "team" approach to fighting crime in which the JCCPD works hand in hand with you and your neighbors to reduce crime and forge bonds among area residents to help reduce burglaries and robberies, and improves relations between police and the communities they serve.
Home & Business Security Surveys
JCCPD will conduct a FREE, on-site security survey of your home or business. We will also provide suggestions and information on how to keep your home or business safe.
JCCPD offers a free bike registration program for residents. The program is designed to help deter theft of bicycles and to assist police in returning recovered bicycles. To register for this program, you must complete a registration form and make an appointment with a Community Services Unit officer who will verify the information provided. Registration forms are available online and at the Law Enforcement Center at 4600 Opportunity Way.
