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.

The City of Richmond and Mayor Levar Stoney’s administration has declared a State of Emergency for the city due to what officials call “credible threats” of violence related to planned protests leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20th.

The declaration follows Governor Ralph Northam’s declaration of a statewide State of Emergency, which allowed the administration to send National Guard troops and State Troopers to Washington, D.C. to help with security, logistics, and other immediate needs following the insurrection at the Capitol last week.

The city’s declaration opens up funds for emergency use and was voted into effect unanimously by City Council Monday evening.
