EmailHaysi Police Department

The Haysi Police Department was incorporated in 1936, and only employs DCJS Certified Law Enforcement Officers.  The Haysi Police Department serves a vacation destination community, which proudly and equally serves people from diverse cultures and areas. The mission of the Haysi Police Department is to protect the life, individual liberty, and property of all people within the Town of Haysi, Virginia.

The Town of Haysi is located within Dickenson County, Virginia; the partnership between Haysi Police Department and Dickenson County Sheriff's Office provides the best equipment and services available to our community.  In addition to allowing Haysi's police officers to have the same county wide jurisdiction as Deputy Sheriffs, it has paved the way for the acquisition of off-road vehicles, boats, generators, trailers, barricades, and a Matrice 300 Drone with both agencies having a licensed pilot.

Serving in the Law Enforcement Community since 2001, and the Haysi Police Department since 2011, Chief Edwards deals with all day to day operations of the Haysi Police Department.
