During last week's National Organization of Black Law Enforcement (NOBLE) Conference in Orlando, Henrico County Police Chief Eric English received the NOBLE Civil Rights "Outstanding Law Enforcement Executive Justice by Action" Award. This award is presented to a law enforcement executive, who has implemented innovative concepts, human relations programs, policies, and philosophies; designed to further the goals of Civil Rights initiatives to improve & effectively address all types of discrimination to further enhance and advance the goals and missions of effective community policing and law enforcement services.

Chief English, who serves as the President of the Central Virginia chapter of NOBLE, was selected out of more than 3,000 NOBLE members worldwide to receive this prestigious award.

Transparency, accountability, equality, and equity have been at the forefront for English since he came to Henrico County in September 2020. As part of his work with HCPD, as well as with NOBLE, he has empowered Division personnel with these values while serving the community.

“Your continued service for proffering equal justice while exposing injustice is worthy of being recognized and honored,” said Chair of NOBLE Civil Rights, Dr. Joseph Johnson.
