Marion County Sheriff's Office Public Safety Fair
The Marion County Sheriff's Department motto is putting citizens first, so when they say they're holding a safety fair for the public, they mean serious business. How to protect yourself in different situations, was the lesson here.
Child Programs like the Masonic I-D Project were making videos of children. These pictures could eventually help police if one goes missing. And remember that saying stop, drop and roll... literally. A smoke simulator is on hand to show kids and parents what it's really like. Other demonstrators like FHP, took a different spin on buckling up.
Captain James Pogue of Marion County Sheriff's Office says,"What we want to do is keep our crime rate down and the way to do that is to educate people on what they can do to safeguard themselves". Marion County Sheriff's Office put together the event with at least 25 different agencies.
There is plenty of information on hand about the different agencies and how they can help you, at the Sheriff's office if you have questions.
