September Meeting Crime Updates
We want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Eaton County Deputy Jon Vancore and Lansing Police Department Chief Mike Yankowski for meeting with us last month to discuss crime issues in our neighborhood and city.
It was a tremendous help to our residents and we received very valuable information about what is being done and how we can help.
Thank you also to the many residents and supporters who joined us!

We also had community partners from Averill Elementary School, Jackson Community College, Moms Demand Action and our Council representative A'Lynne Boles-Robinson.
