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 several challenges in recruiting the next generation of police and communication officers. The COVID-19 pandemic has created heightened competition in the labor market, which has left many community members seeking alternative careers. The Police Personnel Unit continues to evaluate the saturation of the job market and find ways to redeploy resources to attract diverse candidates.

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 a result of our efforts, 58% of police recruits hired in FY22 are of diverse races, ethnicities and gender. Since FY19, the percentage of diverse officers hired has increased by 17%. In turn, the diversity of our total sworn complement in FY22 has increased 5% since FY19. As of today, 36% of our total workforce and 26% of our sworn police officers are of diverse races, ethnicities and gender.
