Community Resource Guide
This guide is designed to provide solutions to crime and quality-of-life concerns in your community. Each chapter lists steps to help you resolve common community issues and complaints, such as noise, tall grass and weeds, trash, etc.
HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE
Each topic covered in this guide will include all or some of the following information:
To better understand how law enforcement officers address problems, the laws that govern their actions have been cited. The chapter, article, and section numbers address titles to the Henrico County Municipal Code and/or the Code of Virginia.
When necessary, additional information may be provided, such as definitions of terms, a brief synopsis of the laws cited, or guidance from law enforcement relevant to the topic. This information is included to assist in selecting the proper and most effective solution at the time.
A SET OF SOLUTIONS
As many solutions as possible are offered for each topic with the hope that at least one will fit the situation at the time. If a problem can be solved by contacting Community Maintenance, select that solution first. If the problem is a non-emergency and requires police, call (804) 501-4838 or visit henrico.us/police. It is very important residents only call 911 in an emergency situation. This allows Henrico to allocate resources effectively, giving priority to the most serious, life-threatening situations.
Answers to your most frequently asked questions are provided in some sections. Keep in mind, every situation is unique and the information provided serves as a guide not legal advice. If you have further questions about a topic in this guide, contact Henrico Police at (804) 501-5000 or visit henrico.us/police. Call 911 in an emergency.
