Joseph V. Sowmick - December 04, 2014
In an effort to provide bonus coverage, Team Observer joins with the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe and the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police in welcoming Lt. Bryan Cornish of the Dallas Police Department as he shares his Community Safety Institute training with over 50 community members.
Representative from the Mt. Pleasant City Police, Saginaw Township Police, Grand Traverse Band Tribal Police, Michigan State Police and others are participating in the free “Neighborhood Watch Toolkit Training” program offered through the U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration.
The community based effort is a part of the “Celebration of Healing, Recovery & Hope” and is assisted by coordinators SCTPD Sgt. Craig Wilson and Interim Tribal Education Director Melissa Montoya. The Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Council has graciously approved attendance for employees with supervisor’s approval for the 8:30am to 5:30pm training.
Council is also providing refreshments and lunch for the participants at the SECR Ballroom event. Community members are encouraged to join the group for their afternoon work session and each participant receives a free toolkit packed with vital information on how to start a neighborhood watch program in your community.
