The History of Kingsmill Police Department

On October 3, 1973, the Kingsmill Community Services Board (KCSA) was chartered, officially establishing Kingsmill on the James as a residential community. At that time, there was a Security Force of Rangers in place, which patrolled the largely undeveloped area and performed armed security duties.

As time passed and the population of Kingsmill grew, safety concerns arose due to the amount of serious incidents requiring a law enforcement presence and the limited staffing of the local Sheriff’s Department. To deal with the situation, the KCSA petitioned the Circuit Court of James City County for the Department to expand it’s capability and enforce the Virginia and James City County Codes on private property. The Department’s status changed from Security Officers to Armed Conservators of the Peace and the Security Force became the Kingsmill Special Police and eventually, the Kingsmill Police Department.

Over the years, the Department has changed and grown along with the community in both appearance and technical knowledge, but its mission remains the same: Provide the highest quality of police services to the people who live, work and visit Kingsmill.
