The Williamsburg Police Department (WPD) believes that a safe learning environment is paramount to the educational process. Our students cannot truly learn if they do not feel safe. Each day, WPD officers strive to keep our schools safe. They do so by serving as role models and forming strong relationships with students and staff, ensuring they feel comfortable with sharing information that is prudent to a safe school environment.
The City of Williamsburg is home to three of Williamsburg/James City County (WJCC) Public Schools. We have staffed each of our two middle schools, Berkeley and James Blair, with a full-time School Resource Officer (SRO) who also assists Matthew Whaley Elementary School with any law enforcement needs.
