A Message from the Chief of Police

Hello and welcome to the Richmond Hill Police Department’s webpage.

As a department, we are committed to the protection of the City of Richmond Hill and all of its citizens. Motivated and highly trained police officers are on duty 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

In the course of protecting and serving our community, the Richmond Hill Police Department investigates all matters of a criminal nature, protects life and property and maintains order. We are guided by the Constitution of the United States of America, the laws of the State of Georgia and ordinances enacted by the Mayor and City Council.

Our goal is to set a standard of excellence within our department that is above reproach. We will strive to do all that is possible to keep the City of Richmond Hill safe and secure at all times. Additionally, we will continue to build and strengthen open lines of communication, as well as maintain strong ties and relationships within our community.

We know that our greatest resource is not equipment, funding or training, but the men and women who work within our police department. Our strategy is to invest deeply in our officers, developing them to the best of our ability, so that they, in turn, will invest in our community.
