City Safety Preparations for August 11-13, 2022


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - With the anniversary of the violent events of August 2017 approaching, the City of Charlottesville provides the following update regarding the City's safety and emergency preparedness efforts for the weekend of August 11-13, 2022.  There are no specific credible threats identified that the Charlottesville Police Department (CPD) is constantly monitoring.


The Charlottesville Police Department is working with Ting Pavilion as they are hosting a Friday’s After Five event on August 12, 2022 to ensure adequate coverage.  CPD is maintaining a status of heightened situational awareness and monitoring chatter from intelligence sources to be prepared to increase available coverage Downtown and in parks, which can be activated quickly in response to any pop-up emergencies that might occur.  In addition, CPD is having ongoing communications with state and regional partners to be prepared to quickly respond to any incidents that may occur.                  

At this time, the City of Charlottesville will initiate the following street closure from 6:00pm on August 11, 2022, through 6:30am on Sunday, August 15, 2022:

• Heather Heyer Way (4th St. SE), from East Market St. to East Water St.

Public transit provided by Charlottesville Area Transit will operate on a normal schedule.

In addition, the City would like to ensure that every member of our community has access to the Community Mental Health and Wellness Coalition’s Behavioral Health Crisis phone number should they need assistance and support.  Please dial 434-230-9704 to access the Regional Crisis Call Center.  The Crisis Call Center is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Further, members of our community can dial 434-227-0641 to connect with the Help Happens Here Information and Referral Line to help find services that will best fit your needs. 

The safety and well-being of every member of the Charlottesville community remains our top priority.  If at any time there develops a public safety concern, the City will provide updated communication to the public.
