Mission Statement

The men and women of the Goochland Sheriff's Office will strive at all times to provide peace and security to all residents and visitors to Goochland County.

We will fairly and impartially enforce all laws of the United States, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the ordinances of Goochland County over which we have jurisdiction. We will assist and aid other law enforcement agencies in areas of mutual interest, and we will assist other emergency service agencies to protect the lives and property of our citizens and visitors.

At all times, while dealing with our law-abiding citizens, we will remain helpful and courteous. Whether by telephone or in person, we will attempt to assist people by taking appropriate action, or by giving referrals
to the proper authorities or agencies. We will treat all people with respect without regard to race, sex, creed, or religion.
