The Martinsville Police Department will be partnering with Virginia State Police as a part of Governor Glenn Youngkin’s initiative, “Operation Bold Blue Line.”

Launched on January 9, 2023, the operation is a sustained effort to comprehensively address the challenge of reducing violent crimes to make communities safer.

As a part of the initiative the Martinsville Police Department was awarded $568,906 for equipment to develop a real-time crime center, forensic science equipment to aid in criminal investigations, equipment to aid in police response, and equipment to increase officer safety.

Residents will also notice an increase of Virginia State Police troopers to assist in traffic safety.

“We are excited for not only this partnership with our friends at the Virginia State Police but also for the prospect of making Martinsville even safer.” said Chief Rob Fincher.
