Charlottesville police publish general orders online

The Charlottesville Police Department has posted a redacted list of its general orders, or policies, online.

Mayor Nikuyah Walker and Police Chief RaShall Brackney announced in October that the information would be posted by this month.

That announcement came a few days after residents raised concerns that the policies weren’t available during a City Council meeting.

In a press release, CPD says that publishing the orders is part of a “continued effort to build upon trust, transparency and legitimacy within the community.”

A limited number of the orders that relate to operational and tactical responses have been redacted.
