From Edmon Yohannes, Exec. Team Leader Assets Protection, Target
I just wanted to send out a recap of a great event we hosted today at T1960. In partnership with Gilbert PD and the Arizona Crime Prevention Association, our store hosted a mobile Child ID Clinic. We had an amazing turn out and we were able to help service many different families. We had some coverage prior to the event in the East Valley Tribune(http://www.eastvalleytribune.com/local/gilbert/article_a50d38b6-b18e-11e0-a837-001cc4c03286.html) and Channel 15 (ABC) News came out this morning. Using the latest technology, parents received a laminated ID card with their child's information as well as a CD which stores digital fingerprints, photographs and voice recognition files. This is a free service that the Arizona Crime Prevention Association offers to citizens of different cities across the state.
I want to thank Mary Jo, Kim, and Vicki of Gilbert PD and the Arizona Crime Prevention for allowing us to host this wonderful event. I would also like to thank my STL Jim and ETL-HR Tracy for always encouraging and being so supportive of the service/crime prevention events that our AP teams get to be apart of.
Please be on the look out for our MEGA Event on 11/4/11 from 4pm-630pm, that will include VIN etching of vehicles, shred truck on-site, and drug disposal where citizens can drop off prescription drugs.
