COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (5-11)
COVID-19 Update from Mayor Strickland (5-11)
Posted on 05/11/2020
Recently, we’ve received multiple complaints about drag racing. In today’s media briefing, Memphis Police Director Mike Rallings addressed those concerns and what we’re doing to stop it. 

Between May 9th and 10th, Memphis Police concentrated on complaints of reckless driving and street racing. This resulted in 190 arrests ranging from weapons and drug charges to speeding. In addition, 60 vehicles were towed relative to drag racing and ATVs illegally being in the roadway.

Testing

In partnership with the Shelby County Health Dept., this Wednesday the state will be doing a walk-thru to prepare for testing at our public housing facilities. Testing is NOT mandatory, but is encouraged as it’s one of the best ways to control the spread of the virus.

We do not have a date yet for when testing will begin, but as soon as we do, we will get that out to the residents and the public as soon as we have it.
