Be on the Lookout for Crime

Apr 27, 2018 | News

In February a vandal, or vandals, pried off covers and removed the LED elements from over 90 lights fixtures on the T. Potterfield Memorial Bridge. Repairs are estimated to cost close to $20,000. No one has been charged and no witnesses have come forward.

Property crimes like graffiti, litter and fires, while much less dramatic, do damage to both the natural features and infrastructure within the Park. And there is a cost to each; staff time and financial resources are required to repair damage.

While the Park is generally safe, please be aware of your surroundings as you walk, hike, paddle or ride around the park. As the warm weather approaches the Park will see increased visitation. Please be vigilant and if you have an emergency or notice suspicious activity call 911. To report non-urgent activity call the RPD non-emergency number at (804) 646-5100.
