Police offer safety tips in Lawncrest

The Lawn­crest Com­munity As­so­ci­ation re­cently held its an­nu­al Christ­mas party, wel­com­ing neigh­bors and po­lice of­fi­cials for a night of live mu­sic and a feast of sand­wiches from Fan­shawe Deli.

The as­so­ci­ation con­grat­u­lated In­spect­or Mi­chael Mc­Car­rick on his pro­mo­tion, and wel­comed the new 2nd Po­lice dis­trict com­mand­er, Capt. Frank Palumbo.

Mark Mroz, the com­munity re­la­tions of­ficer, dis­trib­uted lit­er­at­ure on vari­ous sub­jects at the Dec. 18 meet­ing. The po­lice de­part­ment urges mo­tor­ists to lock their car doors and take their keys with them, even when mak­ing a quick trip in­to a con­veni­ence store.

Wo­men should keep their zippered purses or hand­bags on their shoulders while they’re shop­ping, and not leave them in carts.

Oth­er honored guests at the meet­ing in­cluded the three win­ners of the LCA’s Vet­er­ans Day es­say con­test. The stu­dents were asked to write on the sub­ject, “Are You Proud of Your Coun­try?” The win­ners were NiL­iza John­son, of Ben­jamin Frank­lin Ele­ment­ary School, and Ju­lia Chi­ango and Kylie Gib­son, of Ta­cony Academy Charter High School.
