March 12, 2015

Louisville – Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton announces an important meeting of the District 5 Neighborhood Advisory Committee set for Monday, March 16th to discuss the recent violence in District 5’s neighborhoods.

 “Since the first of this year, violence and homicides are on the rise in District 5 and other areas of Metro Louisville,” says Hamilton. “That is why this month’s discussion is centered on what Louisville Metro Police and what the city is doing and what the community can do to counter what is happening on our streets.”

 The Councilwoman has asked Anthony Smith, Director of Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods from the Mayor’s Office to talk about new programs in place to address preventive steps to curb violence. He will be joined by Major Andrea Brown of the LMPD First Division and Major Bill Kristofeck of the LMPD Second Division.

 “This meeting will give anyone a chance to ask questions and more importantly learn what is currently going on to combat this rise in violence,” says Hamilton. “It is also an opportunity to get involved and help police and our young people who too often are becoming victims of crime.”

The District 5 Neighborhood Advisory Committee will meet at the Yearlings Club, 4309 West Broadway beginning at 6:30pm. Any resident of Portland, Russell, Chickasaw or Shawnee is always invited and encouraged to bring their neighborhood concerns to these monthly meetings.
