Mid-month communications from your Johns Creek Police Department 
PACT (Police and Community Together)


Dear residents,

On behalf of the entire Johns Creek Police Department I'd like to thank everyone in the Johns Creek community who contributed to the success of our 2nd fundraising campaign for Special Olympics-Georgia.

We raised a total of $57,636.81 for the non-profit - more than any other Georgia law enforcement agency in 2010.

We were only able to do that because of your generosity and support!

Each year, Special Olympics-Georgia provides services to more than 23,000 intellectually disabled children and adults. The JCPD is committed to continuing to help these individuals and we sincerely hope you will continue to join us.

Again, thank you for your support. It is greatly appreciated by all of us here at the JCPD, and by Special Olympics-Georgia and the grateful people it serves.

  Stay safe,

Sgt. Debra Kalish
Community Services

Child Passengers: 'Growing Up Safe'
4 Steps for Kids

As children grow up, how they sit in your car, truck or SUV should change in order to save them from injury or death. The JCPD encourages all parents to observe these Four Steps of Growing Up Safe to assure proper child passenger safety.

While installing and using child safety seats may appear to be easy enough, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has estimated that close to three out of four parents do not properly use child restraints; and if you are one of them, that child safety seat may not protect your child the way it should.

On Saturday, Sept. 25, - "National Seat Check Saturday" - certified technicians will inspect your child safety seat and show you how to correctly install and use it. Find a location.
