Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson hopes that everyone had a wonderful and safe Fourth of July. Chief Robinson prays that everyone enjoyed the holiday while practicing social distancing, making healthy choices and recognizing that we are still in the midst of a global pandemic. While some restrictions are easing up, Chief Robinson wants to stress that there are rising numbers and COVID-19 is still a very real thing. Chief Robinson stresses that it is important to take precautions and practice good hygiene.
Chief Robinson would like to invite the community to participate in the “Cuffs and Hoses” blood drive. The LifeShare blood center will have their mobile unit at the Rayville Police Department from 10 a.m. 5 p.m. July 10. He asks people to please come out and donate. Your donation will be helping someone fighting cancer, sickle cell, a surgery patient or an accident victim. This donation may be helping your neighbor, a family member or a complete stranger, but it will help. In addition, everyone that participates will receive a t-shirt.
Chief Robinson and the entire Rayville Police Department look forward to seeing the community turn out for this wonderful event.
