Pitt County Law Enforcement Going Door To Door

Police in Greenville will be working on improving safety Tuesday, through the Project Safe Neighborhood Program.

The Greenville Police Department and Pitt County Sheriff's Office will be going door to door late Tuesday afternoon to educate people on gun laws and why it is important to report gun crimes. So if you get a knock on the door from an officer between 3:30 and 5:30 Tuesday afternoon in Greenville, this is probably why.

Project Safe Neighborhood is described as an effort to make streets and communities safer by targeting gun crime.

    They should be knocking on those doors everyday; trying to solve some of the crimes.

    To "b" So you are saying that it takes an event such as this for them to canvass these areas, hell they should be knocking on those doors everyday trying to solve atleast a fraction of the crime!

    Actually they are canvassing the areas around Chestnut and Columbia/Myrtle.. Are these the residents you were referring to that own guns for protection and recreation?!? I think not..

    They have done this before and the only result was more crime.

    This astounds me...Remember the times when fake officers would pull people over on the highways and the consequences of that? Who's to say this won't happen during these times???

    I applaud GPD for doing this>>I hope they visit all areas in Gville. For all you naysayers "If you are not part of the solution then you must be part of the problem" nuff said

    You can believe they will not be visiting the areas where most gun owners's own them illegally. They will be knocking on the doors where people work hard for a living and own guns for protection and recreational use, not crimes. What a joke.
