Public-police partnership day


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Police Chief Keith Humphrey, in his push for community policing, always stresses police-public partnerships. Activities planned Saturday, Oct. 6, will go a long way to foster that relationship with citizens.

Officers are planning a series of events at the police department, 201 B W. Gray Street. The first, a Shred-A-Thon, with Absolute Data Shredding and Republic Bank and Trust from 9 a.m. to noon, allows residents to bring in sensitive financial documents for destruction. Shredding keeps such documents out of the hands of cybercriminals

At the same time, officers will accept unneeded pharmaceuticals and old or unwanted ammunition for proper disposal. No syringes, liquids or inhalers and no explosives.

Officers will also check car seats for safety and adjust cars for a fit for senior drivers. They won’t test driving skills but will adjust controls such as brakes, accelerators, steering wheels and seat belts.
