The Arlington County Police Department wants the community it serves to have pride in its police department. It is our goal to proactively police our neighborhoods to prevent crime. We are committed to building strong partnerships with the community and to communicate effectively to ensure the public’s trust. Our dedication to fighting crime and improving the quality of life in Arlington County includes maintaining the safety of the millions of visitors that visit the Washington Metropolitan area each year.
The Poquoson Police Department is located in the City of Poquoson in the southeastern section of Virginia. The department serves approximately 13,000 residents. Poquoson sits next to NASA and Langley Air Force Base and is approximately 60 square miles. Once inhabited by Native Americans, Poquoson is pronounced "Po-co-son" and means "the great marsh."
2020 is Poquoson Police Department's first year participating in the Pink Patch Project, but we are excited to be a part of something so noble. A lot of our officers have been touched by breast cancer, both in their personal lives and professionally. We were inspired by the nearby Williamsburg Police Department to take part in this and we hope to spark interest in other Hampton Roads law enforcement agencies.
This first year will be dedicated to the memory of Cheryl Ann Fox (1956-2016) who passed away after a short battle with breast cancer. Cheryl was the mother of Lt. James Fox of the Poquoson Police Department and was an avid supporter of law enforcement.
The Town Of Middletown Police Department is committed to serving our 1,350 residents with integrity and to proactively police our neighborhoods to prevent crime. We strive to build positive and strong relationships with numerous agencies, including the Frederick County Sheriff's Office, Lord Fairfax Police Department, Rappahanock Regional Criminal Justice Academy, Stephens City Police Department, Strasburg Police Department, and the Virginia State Police. We are a small, quaint town in the northern Shenandoah Valley, at the confluence of two major highways, I-66 and I-81. Under the visionary leadership of Mayor Charles Harbaugh IV and Police Chief Gary Benedict, Jr., the department is thrilled to be the second agency in the state of Virginia to be a part of the Pink Patch Project.
The Williamsburg Police Department is excited to participate in the Pink Patch Project again in 2021 after having a successful campaign in 2020. This year, in addition to patches, we are also debuting a challenge coin! WPD will be donating all proceeds from patch and coin sales to Here for the Girls, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit local organization, improving the lives of young women affected by breast cancer through Beyond Boobs! and Pink Link.
