Press Release – July 5, 2018

On the evening of July 3, 2018, the Woodbridge Police Department responded to a call for service after a resident reported that two males were observed going from house to house, knocking on doors.

The males were subsequently found to be canvassers for the State Senate campaign of

Sean Grace.  Mr. Grace has questioned the police interaction with his canvassers.

At this time, I am conducting an administrative review of the incident and will comment further upon its conclusion.

Frank P. Cappiello

Chief of Police
