From the Norfolk Police Crime Prevention Section
My name is Roger Whitley and I am currently assigned to the Norfolk Police Crime Prevention Section. I have been with the Norfolk Police Department for 19 years where I have served on the Marine Unit, as a Community Resource Officer, on the bicycle patrol, and as a patrol officer.
Several of my job duties include Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, Residential Security Surveys Coordinator, and NPD TRIAD representative. I believe that Nextdoor is an excellent way for the police and citizens to partner in making the neighborhoods of Norfolk safer.
One of the programs we offer for you are security surveys where I will come to your residence and inspect doors, locks, windows, and alarms to make sure everything works properly. We also want to make sure you have the best and most secure one to fit your needs. We use a checklist and go over aspects of your home both inside and out. Once the survey is completed I will provide you with a written assessment several days later detailing the survey. This is a free service so please contact me to schedule one.
Also from time to time I will be sending out crime prevention tips to include larcenies from automobiles, auto theft prevention and other related topics.
As the Neighborhood Watch Coordinator, I urge you to become active in your neighborhood watch. If you do not have one in your neighborhood or are unsure if there is one please let me know. I can give you the contact person or we can discuss forming one. It is a win-win because it is all about neighbors helping neighbors.
I look forward to working with everyone and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
