Richmond Police Chief William Smith, Command Staff and other Richmond Police Department officers will walk at 5:30 p.m. today through the Museum District neighborhood. During the walk, 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 311 Lieutenant John Garcia said there have been concerns with theft from motor vehicles and stolen vehicles in the neighborhood.
“The most common type of report we receive in the Museum District is theft from unlocked cars, which is highly preventable,” Lt. Garcia said. “We want to remind residents to lock their doors and keep valuables out of plain sight to decrease the chances for this crime of opportunity. We also ask that if you see something suspicious, say something.”
This event is the latest in a series of walks conducted by the Richmond Police Department in neighborhoods throughout the city.
