The Tyler Police Department will conduct a community outreach program from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m Thursday in the community near Sutherland Drive.

The Tyler Police Department will go door-to-door introducing themselves and reaching out to citizens to ask what they can do for them. Officers will address concerns such as criminal activity in the area, traffic issues, abandoned vehicles and code enforcement property concerns.

This outreach program is one of many community police programs the department conducts to become closer to the community and address problems the residents may have in their specific neighborhood.

Concerns involving other city departments brought to officers' attention during the outreach event will be brought to the city department responsible for addressing the issue.

“It is our hope to continue to develop relationships and helping others," Tyler Chief of Police Jimmy Toler said. "Reaching out to a small area will allow us to identify and address immediate concerns.” 

This community outreach event will include Wellington Street, Bentley Court, Sutherland Drive, Barbee Drive and Powell Drive.
