The Town of West Point is Proud and
Thankful for Their Employee Veterans

 

On Tuesday, November 18th, during the November Town Council Meeting, The Town Council recognized and thanked seven Town employees who have served their country in the armed forces. There were 3 branches of military represented in this group; Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard.

A brief statement was given by Mayor James H. Hudson, III on behalf of himself and Town Council thanking each employee for their service to their country and also thanking them for their service to the Town of West Point.

To honor theses seven employees for Veteran’s Day each was presented a certificate and an American Flag. Three employees were present to receive this honor. Due to conflicting work schedules the remaining four were unable to attend.

Town of West Point Police Department Receives the designation of being the smallest accredited police department in the Commonwealth.

The West Point Police Department was awarded accredited status by the Virginia Law En-forcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC) at the West Point Town Council meeting held on October 29, 2013. Chief Emmett Harmon of the James City County PD (representing VLEPSC) and Mr. Gary Dillon of the Department of Criminal Justice Services presented the certificate which now proudly hangs in the front foyer of the police depart-ment. Also in attendance to show support of the department and this accomplishment were Sheriff Jeff Walton of King William, Sheriff Wakie Howard and Chief Deputy Joe McLaughlin of New Kent and Retired Chief Tom Clark.

Of the nearly 400 law enforcement agencies in Virginia, the West Point Police Department is one of only 89 agencies to become accredited. The Department also has the designation of being the smallest accredited police department in the Commonwealth.

The VLEPSC accreditation program is designed to measure and confirm compliance with the professional standards recognized as the best management practices of the law en-forcement community. In Virginia, law enforcement agencies can seek and achieve accredited status but they are not required to do so. This process is completely voluntary which further distinguishes the West Point Police Department for their commitment to professionalism and their willingness to be measured by and compared to the best in the profession.

2012 Blue Ribbon Exemplary High Performing School AwardNational Blue Ribbon Award

It is my pleasure to inform members of the West Point Pointer Family that West Point High School received notification that the school is the recipient of the National Blue Ribbon Award. The U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, announced the 2012 National Blue Ribbon Schools. The National Blue Ribbon School program recognizes public and private schools for outstanding student achievement. The program is designed to highlight best practices in educational leadership and teaching. The Virginia Department of Education nominated West Point High School as one of only two high schools in Virginia for the 2012 award. West Point High School was one of only 269 schools to receive this award, out of more than 100,000 U.S. schools. Since 1982, the U.S. Department of Education has sought schools in which students meet and/or exceed rigorous academic achievement goals. The National Blue Ribbon Award is the result of exemplary student achievement and the hard work of a dedicated and talented staff. This is a return on our community's investment in the students of West Point Public Schools and the emphasis placed on a quality education for all students.

Please join the West Point School Board and me as we offer congratulations to members of the West Point High School on receiving this prestigious honor.

Jeff Smith, WPPS Superintendent
