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
James Pierce

The Police Department supports the Boys & Girls Club Teen Program by sending officers to the Cherry Avenue Club from 7 to 11 p.m. during the summer. There is nothing quite like seeing a police officer on a Teen Night in the Club, smiling, shooting hoops, or riding a mechanical bull to humanize all officers for the kids. The Club appreciates its unique partnership with the CPD and CPF.
