The city council will use Tuesday’s meeting to honor Fredericksburg Police Department Lieutenant Scott Worley, who is retiring after a 32 year career in law enforcement.

Worley has served the past 18 years with the city. Prior to that, he worked in the Piedmont region’s Fluvanna County for 11 years before joining the University of Mary Washington Police in 2003. Promoted to Sergeant in 2017, Worley would lead a patrol squad before the Community Services Section, reaching the rank of Lieutenant this year.

During his time with the department, Lieutenant Worley has worked patrol and traffic control, becoming certified in crash reconstruction and investigations. As coordinator of the Special Olympics, he helped organize and raise money for the Torch Run for the past 15 years. In addition to being a regular volunteer at the annual Shop With A Cop holiday charity events, Lieutenant Worley also managed the department’s National Drug Take Back initative for the last eight years.

Lieutenant Worley was a consummate professional. Whether on the scene or off the clock, his interactions with the public and press were always observed to be kind and courteous.

At tonight’s city council meeting, Mayor Devine will read a proclamation at tonight’s meeting that notes Worley “embodies the definition of community policing with an incredible work ethic” and calls him an incredible public servant.

The city of Fredericksburg thanks Lieutenant Worley for his service and wishes him the best in his future endeavors and undertakings.
