Police Chief Finds Home 

While in Richmond, former Police Chief Jerry Oliver lived in a house tucked off Cary Street Road near Windsor Farms. Now it appears Richmond Police Chief Col. André Parker will move into a house just south of the James River.

Clearly, Parker's plate has been full. So full, it must have been hard to do any house-hunting.But after six months spent renting a downtown apartment, it appears that Parker has found a more permanent and spacious place to live.

Neighbors in the moderate-to-affluent South Side community of Westover Hills West say word around the cul-de-sac is that Parker's moving in. Already he's greeted some residents personally, flashing the warm smile he's famous for, according to one neighbor who asks not to be named.

The 12-year-old, quiet and stately neighborhood is located just off Riverside Drive near Westover Hills. According to neighbors, the modest but elegant house they say Parker is closing on was listed with Long & Foster Realtors for $395,000.

Parker, who is required by the city to live within its bounds, declines to comment on any purchase or upcoming move. A spokeswoman for the Richmond Police explains that, in such matters, Parker has a preference for privacy.— Brandon
