It’s that time again to get out and start walking with the weather getting a little cooler. It’s good exercise for the whole family. The Chief of Police will be walking your neighborhoods once again. Why not walk your neighborhood with the Chief. Chief Rosier will be walking the communities of Whiteville on certain early evenings. He will have a marked unit following him with the blue lights on so the community will easily identify and participate with him. So get out and get some exercise with the Chief of Police as you walk and talk and observe the community you live in, get some exercise, and discuss any issues or concerns with the Chief. There will also be some giveaways for the kids.
