About Geese Police of Eastern Virginia
Richard and Kimberly Hopkins own Geese Police of Eastern VA. Rich started working for Geese Police Inc. in NJ as a dog handler in 2006. Because he came to Geese Police after leaving a vet tech position at Manalapan Animal Hospital, he quickly received the extra job of taking care of approximately 40 dogs at Geese Police Headquarters farm in Farmingdale, NJ. He managed their care, veterinary appointments, medications, vaccinations & food. This was a full-time job in itself but Rich loved it.

Shortly after taking on that responsibility, he became an assistant supervisor. He not only worked with the local staff at Geese Police Inc. but soon started assisting and advising the franchises across the country about the care of their dogs and more.

Rich had the opportunity to attend several franchise owners meetings across the country.  When Dave Marcks mentioned to his supervisors that he wanted to open the Virginia Beach to Richmond VA area, Rich and Kimberly not only agreed to cover the new area but wanted to purchase the franchise. They had vacationed in Virginia a few times and fell in love with the area so they did not hesitate.

Rich and Kimberly met in college in New Hampshire, and have been together for 25 years. Kimberly had worked in the public school system for ten years as a fourth-grade teacher; prior to that, she was a chemist for ten years and obtained three patents for her employer.
