Remembering Virginia Beach staff, like everyone else, are still trying to make sense of the deadly attack at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center on May 31. We have reached out to city workers to offer our support, and you can learn how to assist by visiting

The local paper created this memorial page for the 11 slain civil servants and the one contractor who also lost his life in the still-unexplained attack. The four individuals who survived with serious injuries continue recovering in local hospitals. This website posts frequent updates on the ongoing investigation and on efforts at community healing.

As we mourn, IPMA-HR will work to identify and share best practices in public sector workforce safety and workplace security.
