Welcome to the Vinton Police Department's new website. Having a department website has proven to be beneficial to both the department and citizens, and we are excited to continue that service in a new format. The department provides its citizens with the highest level of service possible and this site offers more enhanced communication with the public. The Vinton Police Department consists of professional and dedicated men and women who serve citizens of the Town of Vinton and the surrounding community, whether living here, working within town, or just traveling through.
The Vinton Police Department consists of twenty-four sworn officers and two civilian employees. Divisions in the department include Patrol, K-9, Investigations, Professional Standards, Animal Control, Services and Administration. This website is interactive and allows members of the community to see the department's activity, report problems or concerns, and request services. The Vinton Police Department is available at all times to enforce laws and other community needs and we encourage the public to contact us in time of need; if you have an emergency, please dial 911. The communications center can be reached on the non-emergency line at 540-562-3265.
