GPD was out in force during the annual Candlelight Walk. Safety Pup joined us, and had a great time with the kids. Not to be outdone, Officer Eckhart handed out badges, and even got his own hug from Safety Pup.
It was a fun and safe night for everyone. Everyone, that is, except for the Denison student who dressed as an escaped prisoner, and then tried to get candy at the police station.
On April 10th, 2015 Officers were given commemorative badges to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Village Council awarding the officers breast badges to wear as a uniform item. The commemorative badges were not purchased with taxpayer funds, but were purchased with donations from the citizens of Granville. The officers were allowed to wear them on the anniversary date. The badges replicated the first Granville badge, and one extra badge was donated to the historical society.
