Announced Friday, May 14th, 2021@ 1:00 PM Press Conference

14030 S. Park Avenue, Dolton, Illinois

(Dolton, IL) Tiffany Henyard- Mayor of Dolton, Illinois- was joined by Dolton Police Chief Robert Collins and numerous Dolton Police Officers in performing residential checks of various crime hotspots throughout Dolton on Friday, May 14, 2021.

The initiative is part of Mayor Henyard’s reformed police program that includes the transition of walk patrols within the business district to the residential districts. The Mayor is determined to protect women and seniors who have been victimized by the increase of crime throughout Dolton.

Surprise visits of certain “high crime” streets will be performed. Special Operations Units will be prepared to make arrests upon seeing any illegal activity.

“I promised voters that I would decrease the crime rate in our town. But that must start with unconventional methods of fighting crime. The residents will now see these foot patrols on many streets throughout Dolton. We will perform well being checks, gather information and inquire about any strange occurrences on the block.” says Mayor Henyard.

Chief Robert Collins adds, “Our residents don’t just need to see police officers driving pass their homes. They will now see officers walking their blocks and knocking on doors.”

The Mayor, Chief, and police officers addressed the media and then kicked off the foot patrol program by walking directly into high crime areas.

  1. There is no need for police to walk beats and knock on doors, which can be more efficiently handled by social workers and counselors. Σ(ಠ_ಠ)

    Do Mayor Henyard and Police Chief Collins want lawsuits? BLM, NAACP and ACLU don’t play!! (@_@)

  2. There isn’t anything illegal about cops walking the neighborhood and knocking on doors. There is nothing the ACLU, NAACP, or BLM can do to stop them from doing foot patrols.

    • Mr Smith you’re exactly what’s wrong with this country today. You are definitely part of the problem and not the solution to the crime problem in America today. Sir I doubt very seriously if you own a membership with either of those organizations you mentioned. You have no clue what their mission statements proclaim or their primary objectives. Consider joining the mayor in her efforts to fight crime and trade in your MAGA cap.

  3. Social workers and counselors walking the streets won’t make anyone think twice about committing illegal activity lol…that soft approach to deter crime is the reason this is happening now.

  4. Jimmy, I’m a Black Democrat. I belong to those groups, who don’t want cops. What you said about me really applies to you. (@_@)Σ(ಠ_ಠ)
