  • Description
    This Operating Manual for the Richmond Police Metro Aviation Unit, a tri-county alliance between Richmond, Chesterfield, and Henrico Police, was obtained in 2012. The MAU is responsible for the notoriously loud "police plane" known for circling at low altitudes over public areas in Richmond. The Operating Manual reads: "The Metro Aviation Unit will provide aerial observation and support to all elements of the Police Department... The aircraft should not circle a location over long periods of time."

  • Description
    "In 1986 the Counties of Henrico and Chesterfield, and the City of Richmond entered into a multi-jurisdictional agreement that facilitated the use of police aircraft in all three jurisdictions and created the Metro Aviation Unit... The 2006 Cessna 182 and 2000 Cessna 172 are equipped with a spotlight, a forward looking infra-red (FLIR) camera, and a video downlink that permits the aircraft to broadcast images while flying for viewing at varying locations within the three jurisdictions.... In September 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved an amendment totaling $2,100,000 for a third patrol aircraft... The cost of the plane was split equally among the regional partners with Henrico’s share totaling $700,000."

    Description
    Chesterfield County Police body-worn camera footage showing Officer Painter shooting Charlie Byers. Narrative from federal court complaint: "Officer Painter and another CCPD officer arrived at the scene in different vehicles. The first officer pulled up and immediately drew her gun and pointed it at Charlie. Officer Painter pulled in front of Charlie and immediately pulled his gun on Charlie, which seemed to startle him. Charlie immediately began walking away from the two CCPD officers, who had their guns drawn on him and were yelling at him to put down the hatchet. Throughout the remainder of the interaction, Charlie walked backwards away from the two CCPD officers, but the officers continued to pursue him yelling at him to drop the hatchet. At the encouragement of Officer Painter, the first officer shot a taser at Charlie but apparently missed him. Just a few seconds later, Officer Painter began shooting Charlie with his 9mm handgun. At the time that the first bullet was fired, Charlie was at least 25 feet away from Officer Painter and Charlie’s head was turned away from Officer Painter, who continued shooting Charlie. Charlie was not a threat to Officer Painter or anyone else, immediate or otherwise, when Officer Painter began shooting at Charlie. After the first three shots Charlie turned and tried to get away from Officer Painter who continued shooting Charlie in his back. Ultimately, Officer Painter shot at Charlie seven (7) times, hitting him five (5) times. The final 3 or 4 shots were in Charlie’s back, which shots were fatal. While Charlie lay on the ground dying and gasping for his last breaths, the two CCPD officers then aggressively handcuffed Charlie."
