Henrico Police is striving for a workforce reflective of the diverse makeup of Henrico County.

As we continue to approach recruitment with vigor, collaboration and a spirit of inclusion, we’re encouraged by the results thus far and committed to even more progress moving forward.

Henrico Police faces many challenges in recruiting the next generation of police officers. Across the nation, and right here in Henrico, the number of police applicants is steadily decreasing. Oftentimes there is a disparity in applicants of diverse race, ethnicity and gender compared to the demographic makeup of our community. In addition, at each stage of our hiring process, a significant number of candidates are not following through with next steps, resulting in even smaller candidate pools.

We are not deterred.

Henrico Police is committed to attracting, engaging and recruiting more diverse police applicants. Through meaningful programs, modern technology, strategic partnerships and community input, the diversity of the Division’s personnel is expanding. As of March 24, 2021, 52% of police recruits hired in FY21 (July 1, 2020-June 30, 2021) are of diverse races, ethnicities and gender. Since FY18, the percentage of diverse officers hired has increased by nearly 30%. In turn, the diversity of our total sworn complement in FY21 has increased 5% since FY18. As of today, 35% of our total workforce and 25% of our sworn police officers are of diverse races, ethnicities and gender.
