[ARCHIVED] Police to hold second community walk

Police Chief Scott Booth speaks to officers before Thursday's first community walk.

Danville Police Chief Scott Booth and other police staff will hold a community engagement walk Thursday afternoon, March 22, in the neighborhoods adjacent to G.L.H. Johnson Elementary School.

The walk will begin at 2 p.m. at the picnic shelter located on the northwest corner of G.L.H. Johnson Elementary School property along Northmont Boulevard. From the school, Booth and his staff will divide into teams and go door to door to houses on Northmont Boulevard, Melrose Avenue, Glendale Avenue and others in the immediate vicinity as time allows.

This area was chosen as the second in a series of walk locations due its close proximity to a recent shooting event reported on Feb. 14 that occurred very near the school.

These walks serve as a platform to build public trust and develop positive relationships between officers and community members.
