On September 29, 2020, the Petersburg Bureau of Police received an award recognizing their accreditation by the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC). This marks the first time in the 210-year history of Petersburg Police that the department will be fully accredited. 

The accreditation process is typically a three-year process from the initial application through the final audit. To receive accreditation, the standards board requires that law enforcement agencies comply with 190 standards. These standards cover operations, administration, and training in addition to other areas. State accreditation is the best measure of an agency’s compliance with professional law enforcement standards, as determined by the VLEPSC. 

Police Chief and Deputy City Manager for Public Safety, Kenneth Miller, announced during the press conference that he will be retiring this November.
