Filed under News from Your City Council

I would like to thank everyone that helped to make this exhibit a success.  I spent about 30 minutes enjoying this exhibit Thursday evening.  I observed many student’s viewing the exhibit, some taking notes, and receiving extra credit points from their teachers. I look forward to the Police Department helping with more of these types of projects in the future.
