I am a longtime Cavalier Manor resident. My parents moved out to Cavalier Manor back in November 1957 having been living here for over 50 years.
I was raised, grew up in Portsmouth, attended public school and have resided here most of my life.
My mother Mrs. Jean B. Wright was a member of the Police Community Relations (PCR) for many years and drove the Cavalier Manor Patrol car for about a decade (1982-1992). She was a very active and dedicated force in the community. I used to go on patrol with my mother many years ago observing suspicious activity and my mom would report it to authorities.
My mom implemented the slogan â€œPut Christ first, so Crime wonâ€™t last.â€ Very inspirational!
My mother passed away last year on January 9, 2008. I cannot think of another person who was dedicated to driving that patrol car more than my mother. She is irreplaceable in all aspects and will be greatly missed.
I have not even seen that patrol car driving around at all in quite sometime.
The Cavalier Manor neighborhood seems like it is changing for the worst I would say. We have a different breed of people moving out here now unfortunately.
