Louisville – Councilwoman Attica Scott (D-1) will join officers of the Louisville Metro Police 2nd Division for a Public Safety Walk in the Cypress Street area on Monday, March 11th beginning at 5:00pm.
"In less than a month, District 1 is dealing with yet another investigation into the murder of one of our neighbors,” says Scott. “First, Saddlebrook Court and now Cypress Street," added Scott. "We want to reassure people on Cypress that police officers are present and that we must all work together to end violence in our neighborhoods.”
Since March of last year, the Councilwoman and LMPD officers have taken to the streets when a shooting has occurred or when there have been a rash of home invasions in neighborhoods.
“We hold these public safety walks to remind folks that we do not tolerate violence in District 1,” says Scott. “It is important for people to know that their Councilperson and the LMPD Division for the area care about public safety and that we make it a priority.”
For more information about the Public Safety Walk on Cypress Street, contact Councilwoman Scott’s office at 574-1101.
