Wilmington Housing Authority requesting Creekwood residents to report crimes


WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) -- The Wilmington Housing Authority Board of Commissioners would like the residents of the Creekwood South Community to know their safety is of great concern to the Commissioners and staff of Wilmington Housing Authority. Wilmington Housing Authority is committed to work closely with City, County, Police and Sheriff’s Departments in taking action against all criminal activity attacking the Creekwood Community.

The Wilmington Housing Authority Board of Commissioners would like to thank the City of Wilmington, Wilmington Police Department and New Hanover County Sheriff’s Department for their diligent efforts in response to last week’s shootings at Creekwood.

Wilmington Housing Authority asks the residents of Creekwood South to partner with Law Enforcement by reporting all criminal activity. All reports can be made anonymously by calling CrimeStoppers or texting information to TIP708. It is the belief of everyone at Wilmington Housing Authority that together we can make our communities and neighborhoods safe.

Everyone should call!

Everyone, not just Creekwood residents needs to call Law Enforcement! See someone you don't recognize in your neighborhood? Call the WPD.
See someone creeping through the bushes? Call the WPD.
See activity at an odd place and time? CALL THE WPD!
See someone neglectiing thier kids or an animal? Don't ignore it, call someone- DSS, WPD, their Probation/Parole officer (you can get ahold of them, it's public information).

The only way you are going to remove scumbags is to make them uncomfortable in their surroundings. I had to do this with a neighbor who was selling pills out of thier house that were neglecting 2 small children and a dog, thier landlord couldn't get them to leav; so I put them on the WPD's radar. A few surprise visits from DSS and the PO later, they moved away within the month.
Keeping our homes and people safe is a community effort, even if you are not a part of "that" community.

Then all will be well in the

Then all will be well in the garden!

What a load of crap !

"Housing Authority Board of Commissioners would like the residents of the Creekwood South Community to know their "safety" is of great concern to the Commissioners" ... Really? ... Sounds like they're trying to say something politically correct to cover their own sorry political butts. These are the same fools who tolerated a drunken CEO until they no longer could get away with doing that.

They "would like" others to know something. They're "asking" residents to partner with law enforcement.

Bottom line: They're "doing" exactly zero to fix the problem. Not one word addressing the concept of accountability by the residents of this "fine" community. What they're doing instead is putting out a press release to cover the fact that the Housing Board has "done" essentially nothing to address any real issues concerning criminal activities in a publicly funded housing project.

This is so transparent, it makes auto glass look opaque.


And the sad part is that I know some people that could benefit from subsidized housing to get on their feet. These places are so full of crime and generations of "lifers" that anybody that is looking for a temporary hand up doesn't stand a chance.

Start clearing out family members of these criminals and see how fast the crime levels drop.
