Officers, deputies go door-to-door in different way

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Lexington Police and Fayette County Sheriff’s Department have been making a lot of house calls lately, but they aren’t the traditional kind.

Instead, it’s the kind that is helping people and building relationships at the same time.

Monday, officers and deputies partnered with God’s Pantry Food Bank to deliver food boxes to neighborhoods across the city.

“The boxes we’ve been delivering, everybody’s been appreciative and glad to see us out and they are glad to see us in their neighborhoods just being human beings and just being people, not there doing the normal police stuff we always do. Seeing us going door-to-door right where they live, I mean they are glad to see us. They want to talk to us and not just about crime, just talk to us about how things are going,, we ask them how they are doing, try to make a personal connection,” said Police Chief Lawrence Weathers.

The law enforcement agencies are trying to do the food box deliveries every couple of weeks.
