Crime Prevention

The Norfolk Police Department assigns a Community Resource Officer to work and coordinate with each civic league. Officer Carrie Maglalang is our Community Resource Officer and can be reached at 274-9808 or email her at carrie.maglalang@norfolk.gov.

Please remember to report all crimes to the police, no matter how insignificant they seem since your information could help solve other crimes or spot trends. For non-emergencies, please call (757) 441-5610 to reach the police department. For an emergency call 911.

Larchmont-Edgewater’s neighborhood watch program encourages neighbors to get to know those who live around them and to report all criminal and suspicious activity. Volunteer block captains help encourage residents to work together to help reduce vandalism, burglaries and other crimes and email residents in their block the Crime Alerts. This is the listing of current Block Captain vacancies. Chuck Davis is coordinating the neighborhood watch program. Contact him at chuck-davis@cox.net to volunteer or find out about the program.

The Larchmont-Edgewater Civic League area currently falls within the Norfolk Police Department’s Blue Sector. This sector covers much of the area to our south and east including ODU, Ghent and Colonial Place. Lt. Albert Karpovich is the Blue Sector Commander and can be reached at 823-4449 or by email at albert.karpovich@norfolk.gov.
