A chance for citizens to talk one on one with their local officers.
Chief Ray J. Tarasovicand the Department’s Command Staff will join Third Precinct Sector 313 Lt. Erlan Marshall (seen above) for a walk through the Fan neighborhood this afternoon.
If you’d like to participate meet at 2 p.m. today, Wednesday in the rear parking lot at Fifth Baptist Church at 1415 W. Cary Street. The walk will then spread out and head into various neighborhoods.
These walk throughs present a unique opportunity for citizens to talk directly with police officers that patrol our streets daily and those officers direct supervisors. The topics can range from crime prevention to what the officers are seeing as trends locally versus city wide.
The most recent newsletter of Sector 313 covering this last “28 day period (January 7th – February 3rd), Sector 313 recorded an overall 36% increase in crime. Those numbers were driven by residential burglaries 16 as opposed to 7, a 129% increase, and theft from motor vehicles 16 as opposed to 11, a 45 % increase”.
