Captain James "Jim" Mooney joined the Charlottesville Police Department in 1994, and currently serves as the commander of the Investigations Division. Captain Mooney joined the Investigations Bureau in 2001 and spent 15 years there, the last three as a sergeant.
Captain Mooney was promoted to lieutenant in 2016 and moved to back to patrol for a short time. Mooney says the time spent as a patrol lieutenant was incredibly rewarding, where he worked with the finest men and women to ever wear the badge.
Captain Mooney is a life-long resident of Charlottesville and a 1985 graduate of Albemarle High School. When he is away from work, Mooney is a die-hard Virginia Sports fan, an occasional golfer, and loves spending time with his wife and three children.
