RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Barricades filled with gravel were placed in front of Richmond Police Department Headquarters Wednesday morning.
The barriers are on the intersection of West Grace and North Jefferson streets.
8News asked RPD why this measure has been taken and how long we can expect them to be there. RPD originally responded saying, “Sorry. Nothing to say about them.”
About half an hour later, RPD gave a new statement to 8News.
“Because the RPD’s headquarters building remains a focus of protestors, the work is being done to secure the perimeter,” the statement read.
