Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson would like to remind all citizens of Rayville that we as a community must all work together to maintain the peace and safety of our town.
“It is your responsibility to abide by the laws and ordinances that are in place to govern citizens. It is my responsibility to deal with criminal activity and/or any behavior that disturbs the peace of Rayville or endangers the citizens,” the chief said.
The chief would also like to encourage parents to talk to young people about the importance of keeping their record clean. Having a criminal background makes it difficult to get into good colleges as well as getting good jobs later on in life.
“We want our youth to have the best opportunities to succeed,” the chief said.
Chief Robinson encourages all citizens to come by Rayville police Department at 900 Harrison Street or call 728-4431 if you need help in any way. Remember at Rayville Police Department there is an open door policy, so he welcomes you to come by.
