At each KP-SHA board meeting, a member of the Knoxville Police Department reports on security issues over the past month. One thing the officers make clear is that neighbors should not hesitate to report suspicious people or vehicles. If any risk seems imminent, they ask that we call 911. Otherwise, they recommend that we call the non-emergency number (865-215-4010). Although we might often be concerned about bothering the police about something minor, checking out suspicious situations is one of the things they regularly do. So, if you’re concerned about things that you see, don’t hesitate – call KPD.
AND, remember that our neighborhood has lots of pedestrians, children at play, and cyclists, so keep your speed down. KPD is increasing its enforcement of speed limits, so don’t say we didn’t tell you.
