Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith announces the next District 4 Get Connected Cake Walk she and LMPD officers will participate in is set for this coming Friday, February 15th.
“I want residents to get connected and strike up a conversation with the officers who patrol their streets,” says the Councilwoman. “My goal is to go door to door in different neighborhoods, meet folks and hear what’s on their mind.”
February’s Cake Walk starts at 4:00pm at the corner of 22nd and Date Streets. The Councilwoman will be joined by Major Ryan Bates, Commander of the LMPD 2nd Division and his officers.
The Councilwoman introduced Cake Walks last month on Magazine Street to celebrate the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s 90th birthday by bringing cupcakes to citizens on the streets she and LMPD visited. She plans to do it every month as a way to make streets safer and give the community a chance to help LMPD with crime prevention.
“It’s a simple idea and the key is to connect with folks, finding out what they need from our fine men and women of the LMPD and at the same time neighbors will get to know just a few of the people who keep us safe,” says Sexton Smith.
