Happy EARTH DAY! Today, April 22, 2021 is the 51st anniversary of Earth Day--who knew?
Earth Day is assigned a different theme or area of focus each year; this year’s theme is “Restore Our Earth.”

Most years, Earth Day events range from river cleanups to removals of invasive plants. With social distancing still in place for many of us this April, Earth Day has gone digital. Virtual events, such as environmental lectures and films, will take place on Earth Day (Thursday, April 22). To see a catalog of official events, visit earthday.org.

Of course, social distancing doesn’t mean that you can’t go outside and enjoy nature, as long as you do so responsibly! Nature is not canceled!

Just got my FOIA back. Aside from a 19% increase in Part 1 crime I want you to look at nuisance crimes. I worked for APD for almost 15 years and I’ll explain to you why these numbers are telling and scary for you folks. Look at the following decreases drugs -38%, disorderly conduct -47%, DWI -40%, Drunk in public -28%, and alcohol offenses-54%. These are clear indicators that proactive policing is nonexistent. These means officers have zero drive or leadership guiding them to tackle these nuisance crimes. Each one of these categories have a major effect on Part 1 crime, ie: if you arrest people drunk in public they don’t become victims of robberies, r**e, assaulted or victim of homicide. Folks, your chief and his leadership team just presented a 19% increase in crime, and didn’t release nuisance crime stats clearly to show what’s not happening in the police department. You’re the tax payers and should demand better! The officers of the Alexandria City Police Department are some of the dedicated people and are struggling under this tyrant chief. Speak up! And remember, this is on Justin Wilson's watch!
