Intercultural Liaison Partnership


What is the Intercultural Liaison Partnership?

The Henrico Police Intercultural Liaison Partnership (ILP) is designed to strengthen relationships between police and Henrico County’s culturally-diverse communities. Our goal is to build trust within these communities by learning from one another and breaking down barriers. We want to ensure every member of every community knows Henrico Police is here to support them and promote their safety.

Follow these tips when calling 911:

  • Stay on the phone
  • Remain calm and tell the call taker if you need police, fire fighters, or medical help
  • Speak slowly and clearly
  • Provide your exact location, including street name and number if you have it
  • Listen carefully to what the call taker is telling you to do and follow their instructions

Report Crime & Suspicious Activity to Police

No matter how minor or embarrassing it may be, by reporting crime to police you help others from becoming victims.
