Waynesboro Police Department General Orders

The following General Orders are the Waynesboro Police Department’s policies governing most aspects of our day-to-day operations and actions. Our General Orders are the culmination of laws, legal decisions, and best police practices. They serve as a daily guide for our employees and are one of the many ways of ensuring we maintain a professional workforce.

Some of the General Orders listed below contain sections that have been redacted because they contain sensitive law enforcement information which is exempt from release in accordance with the Virginia Freedom of Information Act § 2.2-3706. The purpose of the redactions is to protect certain information that is considered operational or tactical in nature in order to preserve community and officer safety.
