Danville Police officers walked door-to-door on Monday afternoon in the Virginia Avenue neighborhood. The community engagement walk was the fifth of the year and the department’s 16th since these events began.

The community engagement walks serve as a platform to build public trust and develop positive relationships between officers and community members. This walk followed a stabbing Saturday night at a house in the 300 block of the street. Two weeks ago, an altercation at a house party on the same block ended with gunfire and multiple people facing charges.

During the walk, Police talked with residents about their concerns and what the department is doing to address them.

Previous walks have been held in the following neighborhoods: Cardinal Village, G.L.H. Johnson Elementary School, Old West End, Woodrow Wilson school, Almagro, Woodside Village Apartments, Cedarbrook, Henry Street, White Rock, Druid Hills, Windsor Heights, Third Avenue and Westover Manor. In addition, a walk was held earlier this year along Main Street to reach out to businesses.
