A safe park for everyone

Local crime watcher Sue Hille reminded the blog that the Grant Park Easter Egg Hunt is on Saturday, April 23, beginning at 10 a.m.
She's also recruiting volunteers for NOPS (Neighborhood Observation Patrol Services) via the COPS shop on East Fifth. Here's how Hille explains the program: "At this time there are no NOPS volunteers in the East Central-area. Volunteers would cruise the streets in groups of two or more, roaming with a purpose, roving eyes to identify possible trouble spots in the evening or during the day. These volunteers do not leave their cars. They are equipped to alert appropriate Law Enforcement, Civil or Social Service personnel of potential problems and might be given specific areas to watch. Application procedure is easy and training takes only two hours. NOPS training is scheduled for April 25, in the evening. For more information please call C.O.P.S.E.C. at 509-625-3330
