Harrisonburg Police launching second Community Convoy

harrisonburgThe Harrisonburg Police Department is partnering with other city departments to form another community convoy this week.

HPD will join the Harrisonburg Fire Department, Harrisonburg Public Works, Harrisonburg Rescue Squad, Harrisonburg Department of Public Transportation and Harrisonburg Electric Commission to travel around various neighborhoods in the city.

Residents are encouraged to practice social distancing and remain in or near their homes and wave as the convoy drives by.

“HPD remains committed in staying connected with our Harrisonburg residents with activities such as this,” said Gabriel Camacho the HPD Deputy Chief. “We intend to provide support to families with a positive distraction as we work through this challenging time.”

Judging by the number of citizens that were out and the amount of positive feedback the city received from the first community convoy, the convoy effort will continue.

The next community convoy is scheduled for Wednesday from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm and will cover Broad Street, Kelley Street, Wolfe Street, Myrtle Street, Northfield Court, Blueridge Drive, Oriole Lane, Hawkins Street, Norwood Street, Myers Avenue, Paul Street, Mason Street and Franklin Street.
