The good news? Crime was on a downward trend in Richmond in 2018, according to data provided by Richmond police Chief Allwyn Brown.

The not so good news? “Policing is a far less attractive field for job seekers than it once was,” making it difficult to fill both sworn and civilian positions, Brown said.

In his e-forum newsletter on Monday, Richmond Mayor Tom Butt published a year-end review that Chief Brown sent to him, the City Councilmembers and City Manager.
