Danville Police officers walked door-to-door Thursday evening in the Cedarbrook neighborhood. 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 lot of the former W. Townes Lea school at 439 Cedarbrook Drive.
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 seventh 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, the Almagro neighborhood located in the Betts Street and Mabin Street areas, and in the neighborhood surrounding Woodside Village Apartments.
