Tuesday, March 9 at Noon     |     Free and Open to the Public     |    REGISTER NOW!

Community policing encourages interactive partnerships between law enforcement agencies, their officers, and the people they serve. By developing connections within the community, police are better informed and empowered to solve public safety problems.

Lt. Chris Monahan discusses the Harrisonburg Police Department’s community outreach efforts, including the Citizen Advisory Committee, Community Stakeholders group, Citizens Police Academy, National Night Out, and other programs managed by the Community Resource Unit. He will also discuss recent efforts to strengthen community dialogue through a partnership with the People’s Equality Commission of the Shenandoah Valley and diversity initiatives related to officer recruitment.

Lieutenant Chris Monahan serves as Special Operations Division Commander with the Harrisonburg Police Department. His areas of responsibility include the Community Resource Unit, Traffic Unit, K-9 Unit, and Auxiliary Police Unit. He has served in law enforcement for more than 20 years: 11 with the Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office and 9 as part of the HPD. His assignments have included patrol officer, patrol corporal, patrol sergeant, drug task force agent, community resource officer, swat team leader, and special operations lieutenant.
