LMPD recently partnered with the National Child Safety Council, allowing the development of this new community appreciation program. The National Child Safety Council is a non-profit organization founded in 1955. NCSC’s original mission focused on the safety of children in the United States, but over the years have expanded programs for both adults and seniors.
“Since we started this venture, our National Child Safety Council representative has been with us every step of the way,” said Lt. Shawn Spruill. “NCSC has been instrumental in providing the La Marque Police Department education materials that we give out at our community events. Our rep makes sure our officers always have material to hand out for children and adults. LMPD would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Ms. Jacque Smith.”
