HPD Launches New Outreach Program
This summer you may get “busted” by one of our officers but that doesn’t mean it is a bad thing. This summer our officers will have citations for those found being safe, responsible, or doing something good in our community. We have partnered with the Hannibal Sonic restaurant to provide free ice cream cones for those who have been issued these “citations”. This program was proposed by Officer Hamm, who did all of the work to make this initiative a reality. It is my hope that this will allow us to recognize those in the community being good citizens. It is also a way for our officers to interact with the community especially our youth. Just because you see an officer out talking to someone this summer, it may not always be a bad thing.
