The Community Crime Watch Program would like to invite you to participate in its revamped crime prevention program. The meetings are going with a new format and will now take place in different parts of town on a monthly basis at 6:30 pm. The program is active and is expanding its presence. This forum provides an opportunity for citizens to present their concerns and problems regarding crime in our neighborhoods.
Come out to meet your neighbors and members of the police department to hear about what is going on in your area as well as other parts of town.
A drawing will be taking place for those who attend and light refreshments will be served.
The Thursday Septmber 27th meeting will take place at the Mansards Clubhouse.

Griffth Safety Day - 11 am - 4 pm
This year our Public Safety and Community Day will take place again at Central Park on Saturday, September 19th, 2015 from 11 am - 4 pm (rain date September 20th). Public safety demonstrations will take place throughout the day (final schedule TBA). In addition to public safety exhibitions, last year we added our community partners and non-profit organizations from throughout the area which were also present at the event, and he hope to add even more this year. Athletic programs and other organizations from Griffith Public Schools will also be represented. If you are a member of a non-profit organization which would like to participate in this year's event, contact Officer Pete Ghrist at 219-924-4281 x3313, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So come out and see a K-9 demonstration, helicopter landing, accident extrication, DUI investigation, and much more. There will be games for kids, bounce houses, a live DJ, and a visit from Ronald McDonald. You will be able to see Griffith's public safety vehicles and equipment up close, and meet the men and women responsible for keeping our community safe. This is a family friendly event and we encourage those of all ages to attend. Last year's event was the best one yet, and we hope to expand into an even more successful event this year. Much more information to follow as we get closer to the day of the event. Hope to see you on September 19th!
