Front Royal-Warren County Joint Towing Board

With authorization through the Code of Virginia, the Warren County Board of Supervisors and Front Royal Town Council adopted identical ordinances in 2017 to jointly establish the Front Royal-Warren County Joint Towing Board, which considers applications of towing recovery businesses to be added to a towing list from which the Warren County Sheriff's Office, Town of Front Royal Police Department, and Virginia State Police can request a towing operator to perform towing services at the scene of an accident or incident. The Tow Board is comprised of three law enforcement officers, including one from the Sheriff's Office, one from the Police Department and one from Virginia State Police, three representatives of towing and recovery businesses and one citizen.
