The Richmond Police Department and Acclaim Press are proud to announce that we are developing an all new 2020 Commemorative Yearbook to celebrate RPD’s rich history and honor its members, past and present. This hardbound commemorative “coffee-table” book will include hundreds of photographs and memories that fully illustrate what it means to be a member of the Richmond Police family.
What better way to capture RPD’s proud past and promising future than through a collection of pictures and information that, combined, tell the story of this great agency and of the people who made it what it is today? The publisher and the album committee are committed to making our album a comprehensive and professional publication of which all our members, sworn and civilian, active and retired, will be proud to own.
This 9×12-inch, hardbound book will be printed in full-color and contain the following:
- History of the Richmond Police Department from 1807-2020 including significant events, tools of the trade, and other highlights
• Full-color portraits of current agency personnel, active & retired, sworn & civilian (watch for more information on the photography schedule)
• In Memoriam tribute to members who died while serving
• Hundreds of photographs showcasing the men and women of RPD
• Division & Special Unit highlights & group photos
• Agency Rosters
• Plus much more!
Since this is a limited edition collector’s book, the number of books printed will be based upon the number ordered in advance, so all active members and retirees are encouraged to place their orders today! Join us in celebrating RPD’s rich history, and be part of this special project today!
Either version may be personalized with your name, or that of a friend or loved one, for an additional $6.00.
