Public Issues: Safety and Crime Prevention

It's "safety first" for the Junior Women's Club of Lake Murray! 

The JWC of Lake Murray's Community Service Program, Public Issues, held a special night at Nancy K. Perry Children's Shelter

Corporal Greg Wiles of the South Carolina State Transport Police and Master Deputy Brian Hinz in the K9 Unit of Lexington County Sheriff's Department visited the shelter to talk about their jobs, gave the children a tour of their "office," and talked about overall public safety. A few highlights of the night were when the officers turned on the sirens and lights in their vehicles and when Corporal Wiles played Pictionary with the kids! 

Special thanks to Zoës Kitchen of Lexington and Little Caesars for providing food! Interested in supporting the shelter? Visit their website.

DID YOU KNOW? Every 98 seconds someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. That means every single day more than 570 people experience sexual violence in this country. The General Federation of Women's Clubs works to educate club members on safety. Last weekend JWC of Lake Murray club members took a self defense class offered by Richland County Sheriff's Department
