Champlin Crime Prevention Fund

Creating safe community is one of my major priorities of being your Champlin City Councilman. Our brave officers, and the staff that support them, work very hard every day to promote a safe environment for us to live. Unfortunately, for most us an interaction with a police officer may not always be a welcomed experience. Count your blessings if a traffic violation is your biggest concern. Everyday our officers put themselves in harms way to protect us from the worst that life has to offer, and are often called on to save a life.
From a reduction of personal injury traffic accidents to general crime, keeping our City safe is not just a job for the Police Department, it requires residents to act responsibly and the community to work together to create awareness in our neighborhoods to prevent senseless crimes.
I was recently reminded by a resident of the loss of their 4 year old daughter due to driver running a red light. My heart goes out to the family as I am sure that any person could agree that their children are more precious than anything on this earth. It is a sober reminder that any reason you may have to run a red light, fail to stop at a stop sign, or driving while intoxicated utterly fails in comparison to the loss of a loved one. It may not be your loved one that will fall victim, but rest assured that it is somebodies whole world that could be taken from them. Please drive with alertness, abide all speed limits and traffic signs, and for the love of God, do not drive intoxicated, or text while at the wheel.
