Seniors And Law Enforcement Together (SALT)
On the 3rd Wednesday of the month in the police department training room the police chief meets with senior citizens to discuss public safety issues. Seniors provide a different view of public safety issues that may not be noticed by most. At times special speakers present not only on crime related concerns, but also on what is happening within the community on various levels. The SALT committee has been instrumental in the following areas: increased lighting near Perkins, Metro Bus coming to the city, Cookout with Cops, Coffee and Conversation, Senior Shred Day and the lighted warning crosswalk on 1st St NE to name a few. Notes are completed after each meeting with what was discussed and are sent to the committee members.
