Message from the Chief

As Chief of Police, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.  I am humbled to be the Chief of Police for the Roanoke County Police Department.   Please take a few minutes to learn about our department, programs, and latest news.

Our department was established in 1990.  We have been a CALEA-accredited agency since our inception.  The accreditation process is an ongoing effort to ensure we continue to improve the services we provide to you.   

I am proud of our Department and the dedicated men and women who have devoted their lives to making Roanoke County a safe community.  We recognize the tremendous support we enjoy from our community.   

Again, welcome to our website and we hope you enjoy your visit. 

- Michael Poindexter, Chief of Police
