Chief Teaches While Running with Recruits in the City
​
July 1, 2009
When Chief Bryan T. Norwood first took the helm of the Richmond Police Department, he started community walk throughs with his Command Staff across the city. Together, they knocked on doors and talked with citizens about their concerns and how to best address them.
 
Now he will start bringing his soon-to-be police officers into neighborhoods with him. Starting today, Chief Norwood and the 103rd Basic Recruit Class will run through different parts of the city to learn the area, create a presence and help citizens get to know their new police recruits.
 
“I think it’s important to make sure our recruits are in the best physical shape and that they know the city,” Chief Norwood said. “This is another way to help our residents get to know us by being out where they live and work in the city.”
 
Chief Norwood and the 24 police recruits will run at 4 p.m. today through the Church Hill neighborhood. They will start at 22nd and East Main streets.
