Q. I frequently go on walks with my kids and dog around the Riverside Dr. to Back Loop Rd area. A couple of times I have noticed kids (teenagers) hanging around in the bushes near the Mendenhall Elementary School playground. At first I didn't see it to be a big deal, but the other day, I stumbled upon two kids participating in sexual activities. They didn't even care that I was walking by with my child. I know these are teenagers and that's what they do, but to be doing something like that in a place where young children play is unacceptable. Is there any way JPD could patrol those types of areas? God forbid those kids do anything to the children that play around there.
