Outdoor Roll Call - Fourth Precinct

Join Lieutenant Hamlet Hood and Fourth Precinct officers for an Outdoor Roll Call today at 3:45 p.m.

Officers are briefed each day regarding wanted subjects, recent activity in their sectors, upcoming community meetings, and more. This afternoon the Fourth Precinct’s evening shift will hold their roll call out in the community.

Outdoor Roll Calls provide a strong, visible police presence that also encourages neighbors and business owners to interact with officers and supervisors. It is an opportunity to discuss ideas, concerns and the strategies of community policing.

“In speaking with business owners in the area, the problems that have been identified can best be addressed by community involvement and officer visibility,” said Lieutenant Hood. “This Outdoor Roll Call will move us closer to removing the visible aspects of crime from the downtown streets.”

Officers will gather at 3:45 p.m. at Second and Marshall streets. After the meeting, the officers assigned to that area will walk in the neighborhood and engage citizens.

The media is encouraged to attend.
