About the Department
 

The Haymarket Police Department patrols within the Corporate limits of the Town of Haymarket, located in Western Prince William County.  Officers are dispatched thru the Prince William County Communications Center, enabling seamless response and cooperation with the County Police and Fire Departments.  The Town Police Officers are able to maintain a close relationship with the Residents and Businesses, and ensure a rapid response to police calls.

The members are trained to meet the standards of the Virginia Deparment of Criminal Justice Services.  The Department is a member agency of the Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy.  

As we are located near the junctions of arterial highways such as I-66, US Route 15, and VA Route 55, traffic is an ongoing concern.  Keeping the Town "pedestrian friendly" includes keeping it pedestrian safe.  So traffic enforcement, as unpleasant as it sometimes may seem, is an important task of the Department.  Please do your part by respecting the speed limits thru Town.

At any time you need a Police response, Contact the County Communications Center at 703-792-6500.  In an emergency, dial 9-1-1.  For information or routine requests, contact the Haymarket Police Station at 703-753-2700.
