WHAT:                   Richmond Police Department Community Walk

WHEN:                   5:30 p.m. Today, June 13, 2017

                5900 block Westover Court – Abbington Hills Apartment

BACKGROUND:   Chief Alfred Durham
and Richmond Police Department officers will at 5:30 p.m. today, walk through Richmond’s Cedarhurst neighborhood. During the walk, RPD officers will speak with community members about safety concerns they may have and what they would like to see from the Richmond Police Department.

Sector 312 Lt. Harold Giles
said that the area has seen an increase in property crimes such as thefts from motor vehicles and residential burglaries.

“Property crime is highly preventable and we want to speak and provide residents with tools so they can protect themselves from becoming victims of these kinds of crimes,” Lt. Giles said. “Simple tips such as locking doors and keeping items out of plain sight can make a huge difference.”

This event is the latest in a series of walks conducted by the Richmond Police Department in neighborhoods throughout the city.

Members of the media are encouraged to attend.
