The Virginia Beach Police Department employs over 1,000 sworn and civilian staff to serve our residents and the millions of visitors who travel to our city every year. With 450,000 year-round residents, Virginia Beach currently ranks as the largest city in Virginia and the 39th largest city in the United States. 

Despite our large population, Virginia Beach is routinely ranked among the safest cities of its size in the nation – something the Virginia Beach Police Department is incredibly proud of.
