Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson advised all citizens of Rayville that the Rayville Police Department has a zero tolerance policy concerning acts of violence, including fighting.
“If you engage in an act of violence, you will be arrested whether or not you are at the scene when the officer arrives to investigate,” he said.
Chief Robinson stated one of his primary objectives is now and has always been to maintain the peace and safety of the streets of Rayville for all citizens. He also advised there is never a good reason to resort to physical violence to resolve a dispute.
“If you find yourself in a situation that could deteriorate into physical violence, the best solution at that time is either to walk away or to call for law enforcement assistance,” the chief said.
Chief Robinson encourages all citizens to come by the Rayville Police Department at 900 Harrison St. or to call 728-4431 if you need his help in any way.
