Captain Odetta Johnson, 1st Precinct
Captain Johnson introduced herself and shared some of her background in the various sections of the Richmond Police Department. She addressed the recent unpleasantness and said that an announcement would soon be forthcoming from Chief Norwood and Mayor Jones. Johnson encouraged everyone to be active in their civic associations and to be in contact with their sector lieutenants about issues in the community.
(I’ve got no video for Captain Johnson as my video camera only records for an hour. Our loss, as she was the most engaging speaker of the morning.)
