Danville Police officers walked door-to-door Thursday evening in the neighborhood of the Woodside Village Apartments. The apartments are located at 1321 Piney Forest Road. They talked with residents about their needs and how the Police Department can make their neighborhood a safer and better place.

Officers deployed from the parking area adjacent to the main office.

“We have received a lot of positive feedback from the community and from the officers on these walks,” Maj. Chris Wiles said. “We look forward to more walks in the months ahead.”

The goal of community engagement walks is to build public trust and develop a personal relationship between the officers and the neighborhoods they serve. Officers handed out cards with direct contact information.

The community engagement walk was the sixth in a series planned in neighborhoods across the city. The first walk was held in February in the Cardinal Village neighborhood. Since then, walks have been held in the neighborhood surrounding G.L.H. Johnson Elementary School, the Old West End, the Woodrow Wilson school area, and the Almagro neighborhood located in the Betts Street and Mabin Street areas.
