"For community policing to work, our police department needs to have a good relationship with our businesses and I'd like to thank Buddy's Home Furnishings for this donation," said Police Chief Jason Umberger. "Their contribution to our DARE program will help support our mission of teaching our schoolchildren on how to make decisions that will allow them to live safer and healthier lives."
