Almost every day during rush hour, there is a NNPD officer running radar near the exit 5 on ramp, on I664 northbound (heading towards Hampton). With all the gang activity, shootings, drugs and other bad things in the immediate area of Newport News, this officer needs to get off the interstate, let the State Troopers do their job, and do some patrolling. If this officer is too scared to patrol this area, then he/she needs to be fired or re-assigned a "nice safe" desk job. They accepted employment in the department to serve and protect us, not protect the interstate and tread on the VSP's primary patrol area. With more officer's in NNPD being let go and the force becoming smaller, we need all of our officers, especially our South Precinct officers, patrolling and protecting us. A car speeding on the interstate is not a direct threat to the residents of Newport News. The people doing a drug deal or gang initiation under the freeway overpass directly under the officer running radar are!

At various times during the night there are drugs being bought and sold behind and on the side of the 7-eleven. I have seen this and mentioned it to the clerks but I guess its not their concern.

I for one am not happy about people in our own neighborhoods bringing in street walkers and drug users/dealers in our own front yards!! It is obvious what they are up to, and no one is doing anything about it! There are hard working families living in these neigthborhoods and children. I don't want to leave, I want them to leave.

Why are the vacant apartment complex still here? When is it going to be torn down. It looks awful and vagrants and drug dealers are staying there. Why doesn't the city make the owners do something with this or codes and compliance do something with this complex?
