Congratulations on the New Addition, Our Saviors!
Schools out, schools out, OSS let the VIPS out! We have enjoyed our time each school day at OSS and watch the many changes from the beginning of the school until now. We hope you enjoy your beautiful addition and soon you will be enjoying your new parking lot. Our VIPS want to wish the students, faculty and parents of OSS a very safe and fun filled summer.
Our Saviors Kindergarten Ribbon
Today our volunteers were presented a ribbon from the kindergarten class at Our Saviors Grade School. We have enjoyed talking with students, parents and faculty throughout the school year. Thank you for everything you have done for us throughout the year whether it was hot chocolate on those cold days to keep us warm, homemade banana bread, cookies, lunch, the beautiful handmade Christmas Cards and the very special ribbons. Thanks again!!
Police Secretaries Gift!
As part of Police Week, our alumni presented the secretaries at JPD with gift certificates to a local restaurant. Thanks for everything you do for the officers at JPD and for our alumni association!
DOT Foods Grant
Tonight we had the pleasure of presenting the Jacksonville Police Department with a Check to purchase vests for the officers. Through a matching grant from Dot Foods and proceeds from our Policeman’s Ball we are able to give back to our Officers for making our community a much safer place to live and work.
2018 Citizen's Police Academy
The 2018 Citizen's Police Academy has begun. I will be updating this post with pictures throughout the class as they come available.

Finally got a group picture of our VIPS that have been helping with the parking at Our Saviors Catholic Grade School during construction. Everett Beddingfield, Judy Cisne, Jim Oliver, Cindy Garner Beddingfield, Bill Martel, Tom Cisne and Alan Bradish.
Thank You Our Saviors!
Thank you to the students at Our Saviors Catholic Grade School for the wonderful Christmas Cards thanking us for parking cars during construction at the school. We are enjoying our time at the school each afternoon and the friendships we have made with the students & parents.
National Night Out
On August 1st, the Citizen's Police Academy Alumni and Morgan County Crimestoppers hosted a National Night Out event at Community Park. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Morgan County Fair
During the Morgan County Fair, the Citizen's Police Academy Alumni assisted with traffic control and helped with parking cars during the Friday and Saturday evening concerts. They also had a booth at the fair and encouraged people to sign up to take the Citizen's Police Academy course and to get involved with the CPAAA.
CPAAA Donation to JPD
The Citizen's Police Academy Alumni present Jacksonville Police Chief Adam Mefford with a check for $3000.00. The donation is being used by the Jacksonville Police Department to outfit 15 squad cars with advanced lifesaving medical supplies. The medical supplies will be an asset for officers in emergency situations.
National Police Week
In honor of "National Police Week" our alumni association treated the officers of Jacksonville Police Department with Leo's Pizza. Everyday these men & women put their lives on the line to keep our community a safer place to live and work. They sacrifice holidays and time with their families & we are forever grateful for each and everyone of them!
Pancake Breakfast at Applebees!
A big thank you to everyone that came and supported our Pancake Fundraiser at Applebee's in Jacksonville on May 20th! A huge thank you to our cook and to each of our members that gave up their time on a Saturday morning!
