Interstate 664 Newport News, VA 23607, USA
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!
