The 300 blocks of E. Little Creek Road, Fort Worth Ave, and San Antonio Blvd continue to be a criminal cancer for Wards Corner. In the month of November there were 15 reported crimes in those three blocks. The crimes committed included aggravated assault, burglary, narcotics, robbery, larceny, vandalism, home invasion, and fraud.
The revitalization of Wards Corner must start with the blighted substandard apartments in these 3 blocks. The City of Norfolk must continue to purchase those substandard housing blocks. The result will be less crime in Wards Corner, less substandard housing in our City, and the ability to attract new businesses to the adjacent business district. The statistics for the month of November 2011 are below:

Let me guess, Norfol police say that all these acts were against people that knew each other. Or it was the victims fault for being in that place at that time.
that would probably be a good guess. i’d only add that they would add insult to injury and tell you that you also deserve it for being so low as to live there. never mind the fact that some of us bought our properties before wards corner was turned into norfolk’s toilet. the simple fact is, the government does not /can not/will not function when it comes to wards corner. i resist the urge every day to just walk away…
I’m getting out. The crime rate is too high and the school system is terrible. I’m going west.
