CMPD is starting regular foot patrols in Plaza Midwood and NoDa. As many as five officers will walk the neighborhoods from 6 p.m.-4 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Lieutenant Luke Sell says he thinks having officers on foot will deter crime and put people at ease.
“It’ll be the same officers each and every night. Which will give an opportunity to build great relationships within the community. Those officers are here to handle calls for service, to answer questions, just to be a general presence in the area.” said Sell.
