POLICE IN ACTION PROGRAM

Chillicothe Police Department Creates New Police in Action Program - The Chillicothe Police Department believes it is very important to have a working relationship with the public. We believe that interacting with the public will create a trusting relationship and also assist in keeping the community safe. We will be hosting different events where police officers of the Chillicothe Police Department will interact with the public. We will call this new program "Police in Action." The plan for Police in Action is to hold events throughout the year interacting with the community, such as presentations, safety events, sporting events, and youth events. Our first Police in Action event will be teaming with recovering drug addicts. Police in Action will team with recovering drug addicts bringing presentations throughout Chillicothe to assist in cleaning up our community. Our first presentation will be for the Lifepoint Church youth group on February 17, 2016. Our focus of this presentation will be to inform the youth of what the Chillicothe Police Department stands for and what we want to accomplish. We want the youth to hear the testimonies of the recovering drug addicts and the impact that drugs have had on their lives.
