Police meet the community

November 14, 2002

Americus- A South Georgia police department is reaching out to build closer relationships with the people they protect.

The Americus police department held an open house to give people a chance to see just what their job entails. Many officers say the event gives them a chance to dispel negative stereotypes about policemen and foster a better relationship with the community.

Open house at the police station is just one of several events Americus police sponsor to reach out to the community.
