Virginia Beach Street Dedicated to Fallen Officer

On Wednesday, May 6, 2015, at 4:30 p.m., there will be another street dedicated in memory of a Virginia Beach fallen officer.

The street “Rod Pocceschi Way” which runs directly off North Landing Road will be the entrance to “The EnClave at Princess Anne” sub-division.

Pocceschi, one of Virginia Beach’s Finest, was shot and killed in the line of duty on June, 23, 2003 while conducting a traffic stop on Dam Neck Road.

Steve Bishard, of Bishard Development and the Virginia Beach Police Foundation have worked together to ensure Pocceschi’s name is not forgotten in the annals of time.

On Thursday, April 23, three other streets were dedicated in memory of fallen officers in the ‘Estates at Munden Farms” located off Princess Anne Road just south of Sandbridge Road.

Developers with projects that include new streets in Virginia Beach, who would like to participate in this street naming initiative to recognize other fallen officers, are encouraged to contact the Virginia Beach Police Foundation at for information.
