Safety and Criminal Awareness In Our Community

The St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus and the Troy Police Department are teaming up to offer this special presentation to our St. Anastasia family and the Troy community:

Monday, February 22, 2016 – 7:00 – 8:30 PM in the Davidson Center

Our world is changing every day with more frequent acts of violence and criminal activity. Each of us needs to increase our awareness within our community to keep our family and ourselves safe from the violence that is occurring. We have all heard about devastating violence that has hit our communities at movie theaters, shopping malls, places of worship, schools, businesses, highways, banks, military recruitment centers and the list goes on.

Please join us as we learn about all the important information that our Troy Police Department Law Enforcement Team has put together to present to all of us so we can be more prepared for what could happen unexpectedly at any time, at any place.

Points of interest:

  • What to be aware of
  • What to look for
  • What to do in case of being involved in a violent situation
  • What to do in case of an emergency.
  • Who to contact if you see someone or something suspicious.

There will be plenty of time at the end of the presentation for you to ask questions regarding this very important subject that is affecting our community and nation.

Light refreshments will be provided by the Knights of Columbus.
