The Southeast Memphis Community Development Corporation and the University of Memphis Southeast Initiative will host the next in a series of quarterly community safety briefings Tuesday, Oct. 28, at 6 p.m. at the Hickory Hill Community Center, 3910 Ridgeway Road. The event is open to the public; everyone interested in the future of southeast Memphis is encouraged to attend.

Col. Michael Fuller, commander of the Memphis Police Department’s Ridgeway police station, and Col. David Martello, commander of the Mt. Moriah station, will update residents on the Department’s “Blue CRUSH” initiative, which is designed to reduce crime in Hickory Hill and the surrounding neighborhoods.

With domestic violence increasing in Memphis, representatives from the MPD will discuss prevention, recognition, and community resources for victims. Speakers will include Mike Ryall, a major in MPD’s Domestic Violence unit; Sandra Palmer, a lieutenant in the Domestic Violence unit; and Sgt. Pauline Johnson and Sgt. J. Bell, both with the Department’s Domestic Assault Response Team (D.A.R.T.).

Beanie Self and Olliette Murry-Drobot of the Southeast Memphis Community Development Corporation will update residents on foreclosure prevention and the Winchester Commercial Corridor and Safeways initiatives.

The briefing is part of an ongoing series of community meetings with residents, the faith community, public agencies, the University of Memphis, and other non-profit organizations.
