Havre De Grace Police Department News

We are so proud of Yoanni, a member of our Safety Club who is doing a very thoughtful service learning project for his school. Yoanni will be collecting hats, scarfs, gloves, blankets, and coats for those who are in need! We are helping him by placing a donation box in our lobby, so if you can help him out the box will be in the police department lobby starting Monday, November 12th!

November Safety Club was a success!!! Thank you, Officer Marika Krejci, from Harford County Sheriff's Office Animal Control. Officer Marika taught club members about Animal Control and the types of investigations they do. We also got to see her mobile office! Remember you can always join Safety Club by just attending the next meeting, so if your kid is interested in public safety and is in elementary school, bring them to our next meeting!

Shop with a Cop Harford County needs help raising funds for this years campaign! If you are able to donate to this event, you can at https://www.gofundme.com/harford-county-shop-with-a-cop. Please visit Shop with a Cop -Harford County for more information. The program provides less fortunate children with the shopping experience of purchasing holiday gifts for their family members and themselves. Each child will be paired with a police officer to go shopping within Harford County on December 15th. The police officer assists the kids in picking out gifts. Our goal is to raise enough money for each child to have extra money to buy a gift for themselves as well as some clothes. After shopping the kids will be provided with a lunch. During that time volunteers will be wrapping the gifts to be ready for the holidays. We are a proud participant in this event!

The Havre de Grace Arts Collective, in cooperation with Havre de Grace Elementary and Middle Schools along with the Havre de Grace Police Department, are presenting the film, “Wonder,” in conjunction with a post-film discussion on bullying. Multiple screenings will be held during the school day on November 13th, November 26th & 28th at the Cultural Center at the Opera House in Havre de Grace. PFC Teresa Adams from the police department, an experienced speaker on the subject of bullying, has already spoken to a variety of schools and Boys and Girls Clubs around Harford County. She is tailoring this particular discussion around the film. One of the messages of the film can be wrapped up in a single quote from the film, “Given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.” The 2017 film “Wonder” is the story of a boy with a rare medical facial deformity who enters public school for the first time as a fifth grader. It is a story of friendship, cruelty, courage and teaching about the downside of bullying for all concerned. The film stars Julia Roberts, twelve-year old Jacob Tremblay, and Owen Wilson. The Havre de Grace Arts Collective is a non-profit organization that operates the newly remodeled 201 seat theater on Union Avenue, The Cultural Center at the Opera House. The volunteer members of the Collective are committed to bringing the arts (music, drama, dance, visual arts, and film) to the community. Over the past year, the Collective has presented a series of children’s films as Saturday matinees at no charge for children, while adults are asked to pay a nominal ticket price. “We are committed to bringing all kinds of art experiences to our community’s children,” says Rebecca Jessop, Executive Director. “We love the idea of bringing kids to our theater to see and talk about the film, “Wonder,” a very special film indeed. And of course, we are particularly happy for them to be introduced to our city’s most recent performance space. After all, it’s really their theater too.” For more information about this partnership or developing additional collaborations in the future, please contact Rebecca Jessop, 410-502-2005, executivedirector@artscollective.org
