In June 2006 Chief Magnus implemented a new strategy for the deployment of Richmond Police Officers in the Patrol Bureau. A major part of the new plan included reorganizing the way the officers think about the geographical boundaries of neighborhoods.
The city is now broken into three different districts (Northern, Central and Southern). Each district is divided again into three smaller beats. Every officer in the Patrol Bureau, with a few exceptions, is assigned to a beat.
The map below shows the districts and the beats. You can use this information to contact your beat or district officers. Color coding indicates the district. The small numbers (1 through 9) indicate the beat within the district.
