Police Community Walk-Through in North Barton Heights

Richmond Police Chief Bryan T. Norwood and his Command Staff will visit the residents and business owners of North Barton Heights this evening in the Chief’s continuing series of community walk-throughs.

Chief Norwood and his staff will join Fourth Precinct officers for a walk covering Edgewood, Griffin, Fendall and Hanes avenues. Each of these streets intersects with a primary gateway for Northside – Brookland Park Boulevard, which also is slated for revitalization as a commercial corridor in Mayor Dwight C. Jones’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2011.

North Barton Heights was one of the first stops for Chief Norwood and his Command Staff when he began the walk-throughs in January 2009. They are returning for an annual checkup to see if progress is continuing on input and suggestions from citizens and business owners made last year.

The community walk-through begins 6 p.m. at Trinity Baptist Church, 2811 Fendall Ave.
