Danville Police, Virginia State Police to Partner Again for Operation Bold Blue Line
The Danville Police Department and Virginia State Police will once again partner for traffic enforcement and safety from March 12-24. This will be the second time both agencies have partnered together since Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin announced Operation Bold Blue Line in 2022.
During the two-week period there will be a heavier-than-normal police presence in the City of Danville with marked police vehicles.
This partnership with the Virginia State Police is part of the state’s initiatives supporting local law enforcement in efforts to reduce crime and save lives across the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The partnership will be a focused effort using data-driven analysis to guide enforcement efforts through the holiday season with the goal of reducing traffic crashes and injuries through enforcement and additional focused efforts to reduce violent crime in the community. Some of the locations identified include:
• Nor Dan Drive
• Halifax Rd.
• South Boston Rd.
• Riverside Drive
• Central Boulevard
• Franklin Turnpike
• Craghead Street
• Memorial Drive
• Mountain View Drive
• South Main Street

The Danville Police Department reminds everyone that this is a planned, proactive operation.
