Walk and Talk is a series of outreach events that originated from mutual concerns expressed by residents and officers at a series of community meetings in December 2015. The concept is simple yet powerful. Residents from neighborhoods throughout the city volunteer to walk alongside Greensboro police to share safety messages, improve quality life, and build rapport.
Community members – just like you – suggested Walk and Talk events as a way to strengthen bonds within their communities and with the police who patrol them.
Walk and Talk events have already occurred in many communities, with volunteers and police handing out materials that remind people how to prevent crimes that commonly occur in spring and summer.
Residents are notified of a Walk and Talk in their neighborhood through Nextdoor (see below) and community list serves.
Want to volunteer for other GPD events/programs?
Nextdoor is a free, private social network for residents. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor website. Police are not be able to access residents’ websites, contact information, or content. All site members must verify that they live within the neighborhood before joining Nextdoor.
With Nextdoor, Greensboro residents can create virtual Community Watch programs and private neighborhood websites to share information such as neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets.
