RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond's new police chief says he has a vision for policing in the city and he wants you to be a part of making that vision a reality.

Chief Alfred Durham will hold four town hall meetings next week.

He says the purpose of the meetings is so that the department can input to better serve the city.

“I intend to do more listening than speaking,” said Durham. “The purpose of these Town Hall Meetings is for me and my staff to get input from the general public; what we can do better and how they can help us do better.”

There will be one Town Hall Meeting in each of the RPD’s four precincts:

  • 1st Precinct - Monday, April 20 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at MLK Middle School, 1000 Mosby St.
  • 2nd Precinct - Tuesday, April 21 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Social Services Building, Southside Plaza, 4100 Hull St.
  • 3rd Precinct-Wednesday, April 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the ROC, 5501 Midlothian Tpk.
  • 4th Precinct - Thursday, April 23 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Ann Hardy Park Roundhouse, 3300 1st

Previous town halls have proven to be successful.
