Students and community members come together to take action against crime

Berrien Springs, Mich. Berrien Springs students and community members are taking action against crime.

Tuesday night, people gathered to learn to observe, record and report any suspicious activity that may take place in their neighborhood. The program also focused on the safety and protection of children.

High school students teamed up with the local police department to promote the program in the area. Representatives were enthusiastic about offering advice, and things to look out for.

"A person, a car, something that doesn't fit,” says Dep. Chief Rick Smiedendorf with the Berrien Springs-Oronoko Township Police. “They need to take a second look at, they get that "uh oh" feeling in their gut, women’s intuition, a gut feeling for a guy, call your local law enforcement. Say this is what I see. It doesn't quite fit."

Those who attended the program applied to receive a community child watch poster to display in their window.
