Cordova town hall to focus on crime

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

An upcoming town hall meeting will focus on ways the Cordova community can fight crime, representatives for Shelby County Commissioner Mark Billingsley announced Friday.
 
Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong and Shelby County Sheriff Bill Oldham will speak during the town hall, Billingsley’s office said. Residents will also have a chance to ask questions.
 
The meeting comes amid a series of incidents that left many people concerned about safety.
 
On August 1, Susan McDonald was shot and killed when she stopped outside a friend’s home. Memphis police believe the attack started as an attempted robbery and have arrested two men in the case.
 
In July, two customers were held up in separate robberies at the ATM outside Regions Bank on North Germantown Parkway.   
 
The meeting is planned for 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 3 at the Bert Ferguson Community Center on Trinity Road.
 
Refreshments and door prizes will be offered during the town hall meeting.
 
Billingsley, who represents South Cordova and Germantown, is no stranger to concerns about crime. He previously served as a reserve officer for Germantown Police, and now chairs the commission’s Committee on Law Enforcement, Fire, Corrections and Courts.
