Danville Police go door to door to build community trust

Local News

Danville Police Chief Scott Booth and other police staff are hitting the streets in a Community Engagement Walk Thursday. 

They’ll be going door to door in the Cardinal Village neighborhood.

Police say they chose this neighborhood because seven of the City’s sixteen homicide’s took place in that area. 

They’ll start the walk at two Thursday afternoon.

Earlier this week in our Talk of the Town, we spoke with Chief Booth about his plan to curb crime in the community. 

“A department to improve the quality of life. Historically when you go and knock on someone else’s door and tell them why you’re there and you’re here to help. You get a lot of great information.You build trust. It’s not just information on crimes that have happened. But it’s information on hey you know we have litter on our street,” said Chief Scott Booth.

Some of the streets police will cover are Kemper Road, Bonner Avenue, Edmunds Street and Stephens street.
