If you are unable to reach any of the town Police Departments at their listed numbers, please call the Nottoway County Sheriff's Office at (434) 645-9044.


BOLO: The Crewe Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in connection with an incident occurring Monday in Crewe. Please be on the lookout for a grey Chevrolet (4 door, late 2000's model).

Anyone with information or video footage regarding this incident is asked to contact Officer Morgan of the Crewe Police Department via the Nottoway Sheriff's Office at (434)-645-9044 or 911.


The Crewe Police Department wants to remind everyone to take valuables out of cars, lock the vehicles, even in their own driveways and close car doors and windows to keep valuables from being stolen. In many cases, larceny from vehicles is a crime of opportunity and we have seen an increase of thefts from vehicles that are unlocked.

Stay alert for questionable behavior such as people checking door handles or peering in car windows. “If you see anyone acting suspiciously in the area, don’t approach them.

Always report suspicious activity immediately by calling the Crewe Police Department at 434-645-7472 or by calling 9-1-1.

Here are just a few tips that will help protect your car from being broken into:

1) Do not leave your car unlocked
2) Do not leave a spare key or key fob inside your vehicle
3) Do not leave your windows open
4) Make sure you park in a well lit area
5) Keep your registration and insurance card with you, not in your vehicle
6) Store your valuables out of sight, leave nothing in view
7) Never leave your car running unattended

“These officers were close friends, known to many of us as the “dynamic duo.” John was J.J.’s best man in his wedding this year. They were beloved by students, faculty and staff. I hurt for their families and loved ones, as I know we all do,” Bridgewater College President David Bushman said in the email.
