Louisville – Following this week’s deadly shooting and incidents of increased gang activity in the area, Councilwoman Attica Scott and Major Bill Kristofeck of the 2nd Division of Louisville Metro Police will be doing a District 1 Public Safety Walk on Tuesday, October 2nd.
“It is important to reassure the people in the Chickasaw Neighborhood that violent crime will not be tolerated and that we must all work together--community and police--to ensure that our streets are safe,” says Scott.
The walk will begin in the 1000 block of Cecil Avenue where a fatal shooting occurred this past Wednesday night. The victim was sitting in his automobile at the time. It will begin at 5:00pm and end at 7:00pm.
This will be the 3rd Public Safety Walk Councilwoman Scott and Major Kristofeck have made in District 1. The first was in April focusing on LMPD's free property engraving program and the second was following the May 17th shooting in the Parkland Neighborhood.
“We cannot become immune to deadly acts of domestic violence and gun violence; instead, we have to let our community know that police officers are dedicated to finding those responsible for these acts,” says Scott.
For more information about the public safety walk, contact Councilwoman Scott’s office at 574-1101.
