Chief C.S. “Bow” Cook

Chief Cook began his career as a patrol officer for four years with such success it led to being offered a position as an Investigator with the Page County Sheriff’s Office.

Chief Cook’s success and leadership qualities were quickly recognized and was promoted to Sergeant of Investigations and two years later as Lieutenant of Investigations.

Chief Cook’s continued success led to appointment of Captain of Investigations where he led a team of 12 highly trained Investigators including the drug task force for the next eight years.  More recently he served as the Assistant Chief of the Luray Police Department in 2015 until he was appointed as Chief of Police on January 1, 2016.  Chief Cook was selected for the highly sought after Forensic Science Academy where he obtained a certification as a Certified Forensic Crime Scene Investigator.

DIVISIONS OF LURAY POLICE DEPARTMENT

Criminal Investigations Division

Our Criminal Investigations Division is comprised of the most experienced and highly trained detectives in the area including the only certified Forensic Crime Scene Investigator in the county.  They are responsible for investigating major criminal cases, assisting patrol officers with their cases when requested and frequently work with other local, state and federal agencies to bring criminal offenders to justice. Luray Police Department detectives serve our community by investigating serious felonies and misdemeanors including financial crimes, sexual assaults, crimes against children, narcotics violations, computer crime, death investigations including natural, accidental, suicide and homicide.  Luray Police Department is an Associate Member Agency of the Northern Virginia/DC Metro Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Northwest Virginia Regional Drug Task Force.  Our Detectives are equipped and trained to respond to offenders who use the internet, online communication systems, or other computer technology to exploit children.  We believe that the drug abuse problem in our community extends to other crimes against persons and property, therefore our detectives will aggressively combat this drug problem by identifying individuals seeking to buy, sell or distribute controlled substances and bring them to justice in an effort to make Luray safer and reduce the number of overdoses that occur each year.

Patrol Division

We consider our patrol officers to be "Luray's Finest".  They are the most visible aspect of the department and are the "backbone", so to speak, of our law enforcement services.  Patrol Officers respond to calls of all types including vehicle accidents, domestic disputes, missing persons, cardiac arrests, alarms, shoplifting, and actively patrol for drunk drivers.  Patrol Officers work closely with our detectives to perform drug interdiction efforts along with other local, state, and federal agencies.  Our officers participate in local events sponsored by the Town of Luray to ensure the safety of our growing community.  Officers conduct property checks, walking patrol, bicycle patrols, counsel youth, and patrol our neighborhoods as part of our crime prevention efforts.

Crime Prevention

Luray Police Department is actively involved in crime prevention efforts within our community with a focus on educating our citizens.  We participate in community action groups such as TRIAD/SALT and PACA.  Through working with TRIAD, our goal is to reduce crime among our elderly and improve safety to enhance their quality of life.  We believe by assisting PACA, who is actively and effectively educating our youth in drug and alcohol prevention, bullying and violence prevention, we can reduce substance abuse and violence with our children.  Other efforts to help our community include the senior citizen call care list, property checks on residences and businesses, and security assessments.  Citizens and business owners can request security assessments on their places of business or residence to learn better how to secure their property, and make it a less desirable place for criminals to victimize.  Our department is dedicated to seeking new and better ways to prevent crime in our community and believes it is best accomplished by officers and citizens working together.
