Jackson Ward Neighborhood Walk Through

Nov. 21, 2013

Jackson Ward Walk Through

Chief Ray J. Tarasovic and the Department’s Command Staff will join Fourth Precinct Sector 413 Lt. Don Davenport for a walk through Jackson Ward this evening.

Officers will meet at 5 p.m. today in Abner Clay Park, at the intersection of Brook Road and West Clay Street, and spread out through the neighborhood from there.

They will talk with residents about recent trends in crime in the neighborhood, paying particular attention to reducing the opportunities for property crimes. With the holiday season upon us, officers will be asking residents to reduce the occasions when packages are left on porches for extended periods of time. This greatly reduces the chances for theft of these items.

Command Staff members and officers will also talk safety tips and ask what residents would like to see more of from Richmond Police.

The media is encouraged to attend.
