During the month of December, I spent about nine hours doing community related activities in Beat 2. I was able to talk to about fifty two residents from Beat 2, who I knew from the past. During the month of December, I also met three new residents of Beat 2. I met Carlos Silva, Margo Gutierrez, and Hilda Pereira who are neighbors on Rocky Falls Parkway. We spoke about crime in their mobile home park.
During the month of December, I discovered four vehicles that are in violation of the City of Richmond Junk Vehicle Ordinance. I issued written notices of violation of the City of Richmond Junk Vehicle to 208, 213 Rocky Falls Parkway, and 1509 George. Under the same ordinance a gray Nissan was removed from 1800 Preston #29, a gray Nissan pickup from 1800 Preston #41, a brown Chevrolet pickup from 1513 George, and a tan Toyota from 1605 George. During the month of December I met with the two registered sex offenders that this Beat has. They completed the registration form as required.
I spent most of my time this month related to Beat activities to organize The “Santa Behind the Badge” Christmas event. This event is, and has been, sponsored by the Richmond Police Department since 1996. This event took place on Thursday, December 14, 2017, in the gymnasium of Sacred Heart Church in Richmond. Monetary donations were received from local business and The Richmond Police Citizens Alumni Association that made this event possible. The students of Calvary Episcopal School of Richmond provided most of the toys that were given to forty one children of parents who are in financial distress.
