New Tri-Cities Regional Strike Force Launches

Posted: Updated:

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA - Wednesday afternoon, the newly formed Tri-Cities Regional Strike Force held a press conference to launch its first initiative, Operation Summer Splash, a two-day joint operation to round-up fugitives within the cities of Colonial Heights, Hopewell and Petersburg, along with Prince George and Dinwiddie counties.

The partners in the Strike Force include area police and sheriff offices, the Virginia ABC, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The pilot program serves as a new element of the Office of the Secretary of Public Safety's business model that uses the platform to combine state, federal and local public safety resources to collectively work to improve the safety and quality of life for Virginians.
