CASA, Community Center To Honor Police

Posted On May 15, 2012

(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – This week is National Police Week in the U.S., and May 15 is Peace Officers Memorial Day.


To mark the occasion, the Lawrenceburg Community Center and Dearborn County Citizens Against Substance Abuse are holding an Open House in honor of National Police Week.


The public open house is from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Lawrenceburg Community Center, 423 Walnut Street.


Local police, firefighters, and EMTs will be honored.


“A lot of police officers go to Washington, D.C. to celebrate (National Police Week), but not all of our local police officers get to do that. It’s kind of our way to serve them for an evening,” said Donna Thacker, executive director of Dearborn County CASA.


The event will include free food and activities.
