Follow-up Video on Gun Violence Community Meeting Released

As a follow-up to the May 25 community meeting on gun violence, Northeast Ward Council Member Barbara Hanes Burke, Police Chief Catrina Thompson and Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough have released a video announcing that Winston-Salem Police Department and the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office have started working together to increase the presence of law enforcement in areas of Winston-Salem plagued by gun violence. 

Referring to comments made at the community meeting, Burke said, “Community members who live in the highest crime areas begged us to see the presence of more law enforcement and to feel a sense of safety….I believe this collaboration will provide the safety that you asked for and the safety you deserve.”   

Thompson urged city residents to assist their efforts by reporting crimes to Crimestoppers at 336-727-2800 or the Text to Tip line at 336-276-1717. Kimbrough noted that the local effort will be assisted by the N.C. Highway Patrol and federal agencies. 

The video is posted on the city’s YouTube channel, which can be accessed at CityofWS.org/YouTube.
