VCDSA OFFICE CLOSED TO ANY PUBLIC CONTACT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
We are sad to announce that starting Monday, March 23, 2020, there will be no public access to the VCDSA office so that we can comply with the orders put in place by the County and the State. We will remain open via telephone and email only. We appreciate your cooperation in not attempting to come to the office during this time as staff has been instructed there will be no entry. Below are options for a few things that may be urgent during this time period:
Thank you for your understanding. We hope that all of our VCDSA members and their families stay well. These are unprecedented times and unfortunately call for unprecedented measures.
VCDSA members who are registered with this website have access to a document that includes FAQ regarding coronavirus. You can find it in the member login section under "Member Documents." These FAQ will be updated frequently so please make sure you check back. Please also spread the word and share this document.
In spite of many closures in the community and cancellation of events, VCDSA remains open to continue to care for our members, but we are asking everyone to limit your in-person visits to essential visits and request that you utilize the phone or email in contacting us or shopping at Tri-Counties Police Products. Your cooperation in this regard will assist in keeping our staff healthy so that we can continue to serve.
We understand that Sheriff’s personnel may need to update their uniform supply to be available to work in the event of staffing shortages. We have many used uniforms in excellent shape that we will continue to make available at the VCDSA office for our members. We only ask that only those people who need the uniforms come in for them to limit our staff’s contact with the public so that we can continue to provide services.
For the time being, Tri-County Police Products will be available online only. We are sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation. We will continue to be available to ship ordered items immediately to get them to you quickly. If something is needed urgently, please contact us so we can make arrangements to make that happen.
These are challenges we have not faced before and we appreciate all of you cooperating with our attempts to stay healthy so that we can continue to keep our office running. Please let us know if you are in need or know someone who is.
