Henrico Police Chief to retire
Henrico County Chief of Police Col. Henry W. Stanley, Jr. has announced his retirement effective the 8th of April.
Chief Stanley joined Henrico Police as a patrolman in 1962, rising through the ranks to become chief in 1995.
County Manager Virgil Hazelett said, “Chief Stanley has demonstrated tireless commitment to public safety in Henrico.” He added that Stanley’s “effective leadership has been a hallmark of the county.”
Henrico’s Division of Police has grown to nearly 800 personnel, including nearly 580 sworn officers, and operates on a budget of more than 65 million dollars. Chief Stanley says he feels fortunate to be part of the division’s success and admits he’s going to greatly miss the work and those he’s served with over the years.
Among other things, Stanley also serves on the Governor’s Secure Commonwealth Panel, the FBI Richmond Regional Joint Terrorism Task Force and the FBI Criminal Justice Advisory Board.
