Norcross installs new cameras in parks to hinder vandals

Norcross installs new cameras in parks to hinder vandals

 

City of Norcross, Georgia  - In an effort to protect taxpayer dollars this summer, the City of Norcross is expanding its "Police and Citizens Together" (P.A.C.T.) surveillance program into local parks. Traditionally considered a neighborhood watch effort, P.A.C.T’s community-based action strategies will be also focused on reducing the amount of vandalism in public areas during months when warm weather increases use of green spaces. Norcross'  P.A.C.T. strategy for parks not only calls for increased police camera surveillance and increased foot patrol by the Norcross Police Department and Public Works staff, it also encourages citizens to report suspicious or illegal activity when they see it happening.

Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

ATLANTA -- All of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in metro Atlanta will host a special mother-son Date Knight on Saturday, Apr. 28.

The Date Knight format will be similar to that of the franchise's massively popular Daddy-Daughter Date Nights. It will give mothers and sons a special chance to enjoy some quality time together.

The event will have a medieval theme, hence the "Knight" part of its title.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director, said in a statement. "We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage local moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their sons' company over a meal and have fun."
