At the Sept. 14, 2016 township board meeting, Supervisor David Glaab launched the Blue Lives Matter Initiative. He unveiled the “I support Huron Township Police” decal that he hopes many residents will display on their car or residence. When asked why he introduced this initiative, Glaab answered: “I wanted to give the residents of Huron Township a way to show their support for their local police officers who risk their lives every day to protect our families and property.” He added “nationwide, our police officers have become targets of thugs and assassins and maligned in the media. We have an outstanding police department under the leadership of Chief Everette Robbins and I think it is important our officers know they are valued and appreciated, hence ‘Blue Lives Matter.'”
Glaab added that each member of the township board has demonstrated great responsibility and solidarity in making sure our police officers have the equipment they need to perform their jobs safely. This includes the recent purchase of body cameras that will be assigned to each officer as well as the addition of a K-9 unit and the upgrading of the arsenal.
“I support Huron Township Police” decals can be purchased for $10.00 at the township hall. The proceeds will help fund the Police Explorer Program designed to expose the youth of the community to the positive virtues of a career in law enforcement and public safety.
