City police are hoping to expand downtown walking beat initiative

September 8, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Despite the crimp in city budgets, the Woonsocket Police Department has found a way to bring beat cops back to Main Street, at least on a limited basis.

The city allocated a sliver of its $2.1 million Community Development Block Grant – just $10,000 – to fund the department’s “Feet on the Beat” program.

“We’re still looking for ways to expand the program, but we think this is enough for us to have one officer walk the Main Street beat one night a week for a year,” said Police Chief Thomas S. Carey.
