Special programs: Connecting with Cops: This past year I joined the Community Police Council (CPC). I also was responsible for developing the CPC logo. I have attended/supported many neighborhood meetings as we foster connecting community with the police. Funds are currently being raised to build portable targets to bring with officers to elementary schools. I am also half way through the Citizens Police Academy. Upon completion I will be in the best position to put golf programs/cops/schools on the fast track.
This coming Christmas Eve, we will also be celebrating the 28th annual hot air balloon glow. Last years theme and this coming year will be ‘Post It Blue’ which allows community to place blue ‘post it notes’ with comments and attach to police cars.
