Our View: Thumbs up to better ties between community, police
Thumbs up: To National Night Out on Crime. More than 30 organizations participated in this fun family event in DeKalb, including several local police and fire agencies. Often, the only time members of the public, including children, interact with police officers and firefighters is when something bad has happened. Events like this help to put a face on emergency personnel, which can lead to a greater sense of trust and people feeling more comfortable calling or approaching local rescuers when they need help.
