In an effort to stem a recent rash of violent crime in the district, Councilman Vitalis Lanshima is hosting a Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhood Town Hall Meeting on Monday February 12th at the Beechmont Community Center.
“There is a noticeable rise in crime in our neighborhoods, especially violent and drug related crimes. To successfully eradicate crime and create a community where all residents feel safe and proud to raise our families, we must employ a well-rounded approach that balances law enforcement with social programs, and community engagement,” says the Councilman.
This Town Hall Meeting will feature the 3rd Division Commander, Major Joshua Hasch and 4th Division Commander, Major Joshua Judah of Louisville Metro Police and the Director of the Office of Safe and Healthy Neighborhood, Rashaad Abdur-Rahman.
The meeting will focus on the importance of block watch programs to work with LMPD and residents to fight crime. Information will be shared on how to create a block watch.
The Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhood Town Hall is set for the Beechmont Community Center, 205 West Wellington Avenue from 6:30pm to 8:00pm on February 12th.
“This Town Hall will provide an opportunity to discuss what WE all must do to create a safer community,” says Lanshima. “We will leave with an action plan by working together.”
