The Police department prides itself in have a SPMFC program standing for safety preventative measures for children. With this program, children are fingerprinted and a picture ID is taken. There is also a program where children can register their bicycle serial number in case of theft.
Also, the police department would like your help in replenishing their supply of new teddy bears and blankets. These items are given to babies and children who are in a car wreck or children who are taken out of a home that have been abused, neglected, or maybe just scared. Take your gift to the police department; if nobody is there then please take it to town hall. Thanks to all who always give so generously.
