Officers of the Month

It's easy to find bad news without even looking for it, but there is also good news all around us, if we have the eyes to see it. The Charlottesville Police Foundation (CPF) launched a new "Officer of the Month" initiative in 2019 to help surface these good stories. We recognize members of the Charlottesville Police Department (CPD) who go "Beyond the Call" to serve our community, and then we share these stories with the public.

What We Do
CPD Officer Perspective

I have been a Police Officer for a long time. I have seen both joyful and horrific times thru the years; some dark days & rainy nights I have even asked myself if it was worth it, and did anybody really care? Thanks to the Foundation, I know someone does. Not just funding equipment or training or the many other things that have been done, but by letting us see all of you among us as we work. The outpouring of support from the community itself has demonstrated to us that there are still SO MANY good people in this broken world.
