Summary[edit]

Description
English: The Virginia Department of State Police, established in 1932, is the state police force for the Commonwealth of Virginia. The agency originated out of the Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles as an vehicle inspection agency and an enforcer of highway laws. It is currently one of fourteen agencies within the Cabinet Secretariat of Public Safety, under the leadership of John W. Marshall, a former State Police trooper and U.S. Marshal. Colonel W. Steven Flaherty, with 31 years of law enforcement experience, was appointed to lead the Virginia State Police by then-Governor Mark R. Warner in October 2003.

Virginia State Police achieved its initial accreditation in 1986, and was the second state law-enforcement agency in the nation to receive such a prestigious recognition. Since then, the State Police has continually maintained its accredited status through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) Inc.

As of March 2008 the Virginia State Police has a total of 2,603 employees. There are 1,520 sworn members in the Field Operations and Administrative Support Services bureaus. The remaining 401 sworn members comprise the Bureau of Criminal Investigation. There are a total of 682 civilian employees working in all three bureaus.
